The inspiration for these non-objective, colorful gouaches came from the urban and natural environment of California. Environmental, spatial and linear elements were the source of each painting’s composition. For example, in one painting, the crisscross of an urban steel construction in Los Angeles evolved into an abstraction reminiscent of the raised lines of irrigation systems in the rural San Joaquin Valley. Watching a painting change from urban to rural, from objective to non-objective, and from original idea to final image was part of the great fun of creating this little sketchbook.
