Scott Wixon

"Color has always been extremely important to me and is one of the defining elements of my work. Over the years I have developed a personal vocabulary of shapes and gestured markings. The recognizable imagery I use has enhanced the development of my abstract forms."

No Time to Waste - Watercolor and Colored Pencil 21.5 x 29.2 cm
