Through color, symmetry, and repetition I create works at once centering and energetic. "Dream Baby Dream" selects twenty-five watercolors and one painting from an ongoing series of pictures that I think of as color scenarios. Each is a chromatic variation on a shared compositional motif of curved lines suggesting halos, eyes, vulvas, leaves or parenthesis. There is both a balance and an opposition between the immediacy of the watercolors and the continuance of the paintings. In each case, I hope to offer works that are emblems of affirmation, freedom, and possibility.
