Oil and Cold Wax Medium: Abstracts and Portraits
On the abstract paintings:
Nature in its smallest detail or at its grandest scale is a fascinating subject for me -- the inside of a geode; the configuration of continents as seen from space; formations of clouds or of coral. The perfection of nature’s design is the well of inspiration I draw from. Layer upon layer of cold wax and oil paint, added and removed, built up and scraped back over time, allows a piece to transform continuously until its final form emerges. I seek to capture the viewer's interest from across the room, and draw the eye close to observe the tiniest mutations of color and texture.
