Acrylic and Sand on Canvas

I have an attraction to orchids, perhaps because generally they require extra attention to display their gifts of intricate and colorful blossoms. Garden conservatories tend to pamper these challenging plants with their vast expertise and I am fortunate Richmond has such a garden.
As an artist my work leans towards figurative art, and in some cases, it can be categorized as abstract realism or impressionism. I attribute this to my spontaneous depiction of the subject matter that to the passing eyes may only record a blur. My objective is to capture these fleeting moments for others to witness and enjoy.
I believe art should not only be decorative but also tell a story…to educate and stimulate the viewer. The spectator should never stop learning with unexpected wonder and enjoyment.
