Deep Blue Pacific, 12×12
The first time I saw Sandy’s paintings I thought I’d died and gone to color heaven. I remember it well: it was at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery on Pine Street in San Francisco. Summer of 2010. At first glimpse my heart started racing. My palms started sweating. And a bit of jealousy crept in: I wish I could paint like that! Landscapes pushed to the edge of abstraction, leaving only beautifully rich color fields, with gorgeous textures and compositions to match. I could get lost in them for days.
