new visions in progress

Here are some of the results of recent studio time.  (They are not finished.)  Apparently, I'm drawn to more definition than the last series of paintings.  I have been working in a combination of collage, walnut ink and fine pen.  I recently stopped traveling as frequently as I have been for the past two years, and the suggestions of home or villages keep working their way into these images.  Basic geometrical forms are replacing atmospheric layering.  I'm enjoying faster, more aggressive strokes of my pen and dramatically altering the composition of my page in one fell swoop, then solving the problem I created with an area of texture or a carefully placed line.
