This group of paintings is influenced
by my love of texture and the color red.
In this series the color red represents joy
and carries the theme of rhapsody throughout the pieces.
A rhapsody is a work that is episodic yet integrated, free-flowing in structure, featuring a range of highly contrasted moods, color and tonality.
It has an air of spontaneous inspiration and a sense of improvisation.
