I’m inspired by color and value and how they can surprise you. I look for ways where a spot of pure color can surprisingly work.
Oil paints have a buttery consistency that I love to work with. There is a certain point in a painting when you have built up enough paint that you can push it around on a smooth board and get interesting results.
Painting small and often allows me to experiment more and mark my progress. I strive to capture a moment in time – a slice of everyday life.
