The sensual pleasure of life’s beat

Rising From the Valley, pastel, 25″ x 37″

All of my work tries to express my underlying sense of the roiling-quiet majesty underneath the surface of things. In this detail of the work in progress you can see what I like to describe as the “dance” going on–the placement of line and value that forms a visual tempo to both the composition and my interpretation of the ‘living experience.’

Like dancing, success in drawing and painting often depends on knowing all the basic ‘steps’ and then truly listening for life’s beat and rhythm for cues.
