New Paintings in the Botanical Series

Here are a few new paintings in the Botanical Series –

still life, painting, flower,

Vase and Vessel | 12×12 | Oil | CJK-Studio

This small painting inspired the large work below – I was attracted to the muted tones and calm clean palette.

encaustic, oil, wax, painting, still life, flowers

Dancing Irises | 40×30 | Oil Encaustic | CJK-Studio

I was inspired to do this larger painting ” Dancing Irises”  having painted a smaller version of this still life set up ” Vase and Vessel”. The Irises provide rhythm and movement in a calm muted set up. – I like the play of frenzy and composure.

 Peaceful Posy – Layers of paint and wax this is an extremely textural painting.

Mirror Life | 40×30 each | Oil Encasutic | CJK-Studio


A pair of paintings – (Placement on either side of a bookcase) – The challenge and interest for me  was to explore rhythm and balance.

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!

Water is a universal symbol of change and as we mark the end of one year and the beginning of another it seems fitting to share new works from my Seascape series with you. Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity.  A New Year marks change and optimism and watching the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. Capturing these special moments are my joy and challenge as an artist.

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!
