The colors and simplified forms of nature are my passion and inspiration. I like color and bold brushwork. I paint in oils and acrylics while trying to capture the colorful shadows and highlights I observe.   I also throw porcelain and stoneware pottery at cone 10 reduction.  This produces Oriental glazes of great depth and color.   

Note from Al:

You can see my work at our website as we have closed the gallery and are moving back to Eastport ASAP.  This website is more representative of my work and artistic skills.  Thanks for your consideration.  Al Erikson
