Small Works, Artist statement: “The works in this series often reflect a tropical mood and are painted with rich saturated watercolors.Read More...

When working on a piece this size, I feel as if I am taking a vacation without ever leaving the studio. It makes me happy that many people feel this body of work transports them, too. Popular in size as well as affordable, each work is an original cut paper assemblage. I love to revisit this series at least once every year, even if I only have time to create a few of the Small Works.

It was inspired by the tiniest life forms that are so dependent on dynamic forces in our bay. I chose this title in honor of Robert F. Kennedy, who said: “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came”.


"Hurricane Ivan", 28” x 20” © B.Appleton...$5500.“Hurricane Ivan”28″ x 20″, cut paper assemblage: This piece is now released from the artist’s personal collection and available for purchase. Read More...

“Ivan” is one of the most detailed hurricane studies to date; the detail in the slideshow illustrates its intricacy. Compatible with current work, this piece exhibits often and has gathered a solid exhibition history. Sold.


"Midnight Tango" © B.Appleton...$6800.“Midnight Tango”, 34″ x 26″, cut paper assemblage: “I am proud to announce the release of “Midnight Tango”. Created in 1997, this cut paper assemblage has exhibited frequently and influenced many honors while representing my work nationwide.Read More...

  As a first place award winner during the Sausalito Art Festival, “Midnight Tango” was chosen to represent this respected California annual event. Well traveled, this lively piece is now available for a permanent home”.


"Diatomorama I" ©B.AppletonThe “Diatomorama Series, 25″ x 25″, cut paper assemblages: Artist Statement...

“In 1992, I created the first of what was to become a body of work inspired by an ancient circular art form, the mandala. Using Florida imagery, I named this series Floridala. To date, I have created 143 cut paper Floridalas; each very different from the other.

Interested in microscopy, I stumbled upon the works of artists from the 1800’s who manipulated diatoms by using a single hair and a microscope to form intricately patterned mandalas and other designs. Thus, the tiniest of artworks were created, viewed with the aid of a microscope. Combining experiences, I am creating circular works based on diatoms discovered in local waters; the Diatomorama Series begins!”


All the images in the Diatomorama series are inspired by micrographs collected by the artist from the Apalachicola River and Bay Estuary. The piece (shown underway) is a watercolor cut paper assemblage.

This page will update as works are sold and others become available. If you are interested in purchasing a work of art, please contact the artist for the most current information.
