    About The Work

    I pour colors onto the canvas and watch what happens, intuitively I edit. In a manner similar to the impressionist mindset. There is, in me, a constant attentive awareness to create light within the work through color pairings and interactions. This is an emotional response to my surroundings. A moment is captured not as a pastoral landscape; but as the glow of light or movement of forms. My tendency leans to the calm, soothing organic application over the vigorous brushstroke.
    
Mixed media allows for more creative freedom and gives the materials a voice. I direct, they sing.  The materials are manipulated and moved around in an effort to form the idea of the painting.  Mediums are added to get the desired consistency and texture. I chime in to gather the idea together.
    
Translucency is created via different techniques and is usually the result of great experimentation. Water and other mediums are added to the materials to allow for spontaneous incidental reactions. I then use hard edges in the oil paint to edit, finding the gems in underlying layers.  Mark making in the painting serves as a resting place for the eye and adds diversity from the organic shapes in my work.  I also use graphite and oil pastel as drawn elements.
