I personally believe, the category 'abstract' is for this one not complete.. Do not really categorize my work.. but since is required.. goes for me as 'abstracted expressionism'..
uploaded Nov.23,2013-- .. panted this oil painting in 1975 when I was for several weeks in Izmir, Turkey… not from photo or on site.. but took in minds eye images with me, back to the penthouse apartment in Izmir …that overlooked the sea…is on canvas sheet.. and heavy textured.. then.. I painted mostly in oils…several hues on brush.. and each once on canvas expressed beautifully individually yet as 'one'...... ran out of white.. and used my tooth paste.. which served me well for mixing.. and softer whites…now.. after 38 years, still enchants my eyes.. the abundance of blooming fruit trees.. the scent.. beauty is in pleasant recall...
* so.. now.. have climate controlled storage area .. photograph and catalogue my works.. and there are more than a few… the creations will be in a safe and protected area..
.. am in process of accumulated things in long life
journeys.. things I thought, I cannot be without…mostly sentimental… noticed.. I can be without most.. but some just are intensely part of 'me'.. my core.. and that is my Art...… my contribution…my 'legacy'… Must take care , it is safe.. either to 'stay'.. or wait.. until find 'destined home'.. be part of beauty…value.
