                                           The Pop Series

These series’ (The Pop Series I and II) initiated with some automatic sketches that I drew —  (I was working from my imagination without a preconceived thought process.) 

I decided later to paint these simplistic designs, using bold-popish colors.  I made a conscious decision to work in a more graphic style.  I had to adjust my normal painting techniques, and experiment with the layering of paint to arrive at the destination that I had already realized in my mind.  My goal was to create a bold, uplifting body of work that builds on design and adheres to basic pop aesthetics.
