"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks.  Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Color Form Paintings

Dry on Wet, Wet on Wet, & Wet on Dry Painting Techniques 

Color Forms

Color Forms are a study in abstraction (or variation of form) and color, through which I try to express my desire for flowing water, harmonizing colors and interacting parts and wholes.  Each Color Form begins with a subject, or form, and a color scheme.  The subject can be a simple shape like a circle or an object like a leaf.  That subject is varied and the variations  are painted in a way to relate, and usually connect, to one another, giving a sense of flow, movement and interaction.  The use of color forms other dynamics, effecting the balance, harmony and composition.

About Color Forms

Color Form is the name given to an abstract style of powder-based watercolor painting.  

The relationship between boundaries, edges, blending, form & color are playfully studied in every Color Form.   

Color Forms vary, or “abstract” , the boundaries of forms by blending & defining colors & edges.  

In order for a Color Form to be successful, it must reveal a whole in which all the parts are related.; a synergistic effect is achieved in every successful Color Form.  

As with art itself, the reality of Color Forms can be observed throughout the universe.  

Bodies of water, liquid metals & cosmic gases are just three examples of regularly occurring Color Forms.  

Painted Color Forms aim to do what naturally occurring color forms do, reveal the constant interaction & play between boundaries, edges, color & form. 

In addition, Color Forms are intended to lead the viewer, & painter, to consider the notion that color itself possesses a "form".  

Color Forms can help us contemplate the relationship between energy & matter, color & form.
