Color is a paradise and a maze. Painters get lost in colors like blue ochre, red earth and cobalt turquoise.  From time to time, we return to the none-too-simple groundwork of black, white and gray, to a world of value and contrasting forms.

These paintings on paper were begun in outdoor painting sessions with my friend, Eduardo Izquierdo. They continued in a subsection of “The Beach Players” series and in various studio settings.

They are ongoing; that is, they’re the beginning of a great many lessons that I still have to learn.
