Structures  
Mixed Media and Linoleum Prints on Paper

After a series of works based on plants in my garden I have recently been looking beyond my own surroundings to the larger vistas and neighborhoods of the city of San Francisco.   Initially inspired by the Golden Gate Bridge 75th anniversary in 2012,  I worked on a series of structural images which became the ???Structures??? series.  The first ones were abstract impressions of bridges and girders, but each new one seemed to get closer to my own neighborhood of Bernal Heights with suggestions of hillsides and houses.

   These works are multi-layered, each one beginning with an abstract layer of acrylic paint.  When dry, masking tape or stencils (or liquid frisket) are applied, then another layer of paint. After removing the stencils, I sketch in or emphasize shapes with pencil and finally flesh out the details with color pencils, ???art stix??? or markers.  
   
   I began bringing my camera with me on local walks, taking photos of houses within a few blocks of mine. A corner house in south east Bernal became the inspiration for a linoleum print (originally as a demo for an art class workshop) and this became one of the motifs for my most recent mixed media works.
