Carved in Stone

Topics: Favorite Series, Maine, Rocks, What's Happening, rock patterns, surface

I have been in love with rocks for a long time; boulders and rockfaces have figures prominently in my work. Now i have started a series of rockface closeup, where I can really focus on the patterns of color and form. The patterns of color are amprophous and soft-edged, while the forms are hard-edged and crisp. The combination makes for a wonderful richness, and often a spur to the imagination.

I have chosen "Carved in Stone" as a potential title for a exhibition of thsi group of works, if it ever happens. The work I am showing here I call "Cracking Up".
