A critique of this work that I have considered is that it might be considered a little cerebral as opposed to expressive or emotional. But I have other work that expresses that side of my character. For some reason right now, I’m really entranced by patterns of value, color, and pattern. At the same time, however, I think this stuff has its emotional dimension. Abstract as it might be, it also still relates to my landscape work. Thus the title of this piece, also in the show.
