Geometric Painting

I did this painting lsat year as a response to how I was feeling that particular day. I used many shades of red to express my varied levels of emotion.

Response to Emotions Paintings

Both of these paintings were done at the same time as I was realizing a new method and purpose to my paintings. I felt an inspiration for painting and decided to use vibrant colors and layers of circles filled with color to express this excitement and joy of painting.

This is a drawing I did a few weeks ago with India Ink, Oil Pastel, and Soft Pastel. It is basically an energy drawing done very quickly and deliberately.

Walden Pond

This is a photo I took when I visited Walden Pond in Massachusetts over Christmas break. I really enjoy reading Walden: Or Life in the Woods and find spiritual inspiration from his work. Walden Pond is most beautiful in the fall when the trees around the Pond are vibrantly changing colors and leaves cascade down onto the water in reds, oranges, and yellows.
