Welcome to Chromaportal.  


Chroma is color in Greek. Portal is door, gate, star-gate to other universes.


The images on this site are mostly from 2018 and 2019.   I first started painting in 1990.

The technique in these images is layered oil crayons (Sakura Cray pas) on wood panel. The frame motifs are acrylic paint, mixed with powdered pumice and mica flakes, and interference paint. In the thick paint applied to the boxes and frames I frequently inscribe words.

"Thought Dreams" 2015, oil crayon and acrylic on wood

"And if my thought dreams could be seen, they'd probably put my head in a guillotine.  " - Bob Dylan
