"The Past Claws Its Way Out" - oil on canvas, 15 x 30 x .75 inches. Ready to hang.

“I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 1975. I remember the precise moment, crouching behind a crumbling mud wall, peeking into the alley near the frozen creek. That was a long time ago, but it’s wrong what they say about the past, I’ve learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out. Looking back now, I realize I have been peeking into that deserted alley for the last twenty-six years.”
― Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

The sea is elusive; it defies capturing.  Yet I try again and again - in detail, in abstraction, in color, in shape, in line, in texture, in mood.  Here I boil it down to the simplest of abstractions - the sunset over the darkening landscape or water.  Yum.A pop art polar bear who happens to be an introvert.  It's just as well - he's got a grumpy side.Capturing ethereal mood in an abstracted landscapeTranslating the basalt cliffs of the Columbia River Gorge to an abstract landscape.
