Being obsessed with cloth flowing in the wind, detaching itself from a clothes line and wanting to capture a kind of soul to the cloth, this obsession gave way to, or you could say, channeled Static Line, a series of paintings about releasing what may bind you and at the same time, allowing a sense of stillness. These scenes of clothes lines became a simple, silently descriptive subject matter, filled with intent.

The following sketches of “passing” were completely abstract and severely bold in color, the idea, however, morphed into a more literal piece with out lines, shading and softer color tones.

Looking back during this retrograde period and coming upon these older sketches, I am considering expanding the series to outdoor steps, yard scenes, where the releasing factor takes hold again.

Here are some sketches done in the past.
