laverne

Hello friends, I am a painter living and displaying in Arizona. I have displayed in several galleries in Ontario, Canada prior to moving to Arizona. My original oil paintings, with the use of painting knives, larger brushes and generous, deliberate strokes, often develop into unexpected, surprising and unplanned results. My spontaneous strokes express and uncover underlying images that impact the viewers imagination and sensibilities. Earthy colors and texture as well as primary colors blend well with my expressionist contemporary style. My work ranges from figural, nature, still life, and Arizona influenced landscapes. Whatever the blending of paint and the canvas produces will help to determine the direction the painting will go. I often create the background and then observe the effect until some image suggests the subject and leads to the final result. The canvas may go through many changes until I am excited with what I see. I am currently displaying a range of affordable figural, nature, abstract, floral and still life oil paintings both large and small.
