My current painting process:
I’ve always been intrigued by pattern and color. Currently I am exploring these elements and going back to a more polished, detailed and elegant style. The last couple years have been a practice and pursuit to find a more confident and straight forward approach to painting. In the earlier months of 2016, I continued this practice and still have a few direct paintings to share. To learn more about my artistic evolution you can read my updated post, Evolution.
You will see in the next coming months mostly smaller size paintings in various arrangements that evoke a feeling of serenity, beauty and comfort. These paintings take between 2-4 weeks to complete each, or between 80 to 160 hours between concept to new arrival at the gallery. They are painted on wood or composite panels, primed to a very smooth surface and finished with multiple layers of glazes and scumbles to achieve a richly dimensional surface detail. Some will have a more modern style with a clean, simple presentation with cradled unframed edges while others are given a more elaborate and decorative treatment with dark or gilded frames.
