The focus of the artwork in this show is about water reflections. Using nature as the springboard, I love to use the abstract nature of “water reflections” as a design element & subject matter. There are endless possibilities of how to interpret “water reflections”. The paintings are from a series I have been working on for the past 4-5 years. I live on a river in Lowell and have a view of water from my home.

I like to experiment with pattern, line, color and value and try to capture the essence of this subject matter. I like to incorporate images of water lilies, trees & other elements of nature that can be reflected in the water. I typically work in oils & I enjoy the luminosity of color and the many possible application techniques.

When creating paintings, I usually take a theme from nature and focus on abstracting the elements that I see in the natural environment.

I have been working as a visual artist all of my life. I have exhibited in the Boston, New England & New York area for over 50 years and have shown my work in juried group shows & one-person shows in several art galleries, art centers, business facilities, on-line galleries and art museums.

There will be a reception for the artist on Sunday, September 8, from 2:30 to 4:30 pm. All are welcome.

This exhibit is made possible by the Groton Public Library Endowment Trust.
