“Wild Flowers” 2/24′ x 18″ oil on linen.

For many years I have played with the Diptych as well as the triptych format with my works. It is always a challenge to make the pieces stand on their own with strong design and the elements of esthetics, and finally work together as one. I always frame my work, so it adds an extra dimension to these windows into visual illusion.

This piece entitled “Wild Flowers” was part of a recent European series in landscape. Landscape painting for me is liberating because I find it so much easier to execute than the figure work I paint.
