An ongoing series of oil pastel drawings and oil and wax paintings on paper explores the “geometries of place.” These small-scale, intimate works explore the essential nature of interior and exterior worlds through basic forms and textural blocks of color. The small scale of these works invites the viewer’s close-up examination.
