Weekly file: composition and light

This artist's resume reads like a who's who of the area's blue chip exhibitions, galleries, and collections - and the kudos are well-deserved.  We are most fond of his work with watercolors and monoprints - as the simplicity of composition and facility with reflection and light are highlighted with these two mediums.  But there are some very interesting oil paintings from the past couple of years..so we'll need to come back to them and give you a second look soon.
