Loops, marker and colored pencil, 2014
In 2014, I seemed to have been relishing in the representation of my work by Cross MacKenzie Gallery. Therefore, I neglected to photograph many drawings. The three groups below are among them. The media for the first group of four are silver marker and putty beige colored pencil. They are each ten inches square. The…
Grasses 1, 2, 3, 2021
These drawings manifest a turn from concentrating on drawing images of trees which occupied me for a while. I foraged through my Instagram images of grasses that I took on my Sunday walks in Worthington, MA to choose subjects for these three drawings, which are, in themselves, abstractions of the photographs. All of the drawings…
Corners Series, 2008
The concept of these drawings germinates once again in minimalism, the non-objective, and self-referentiality.

Configuring it is a means to appreciate the process as it goes forth and increase the artist’s mindfulness of the direction of the…

I did these after I did the three large Healing Series paintings. They are actually drawings for nine paintings. Each small square was intended to be 10 inches by 10…
Untitled Drawings, 2012
These drawings have no meaning. They are mere vehicles to move the colored pencil around the paper in a fairly uniform way. They are all small, maybe 9 inches by 8 inches. A contrast to the large black and white drawings also executed in this year.
Transformation from the Root, #1-5, 2020
These pieces are all on canvas. They each measure sixty inches in height by twenty-two inches in width. They are made with acrylic, colored pencil and marker. The first layer is acrylic and forms the background. The second layer traces the shapes left by the dripping paint with permanent silver marking pen. The last…
