I currently work primarily with acrylic paint, a medium which allows me to explore and celebrate a wide range of colors and effects. My paintings evolve through a process of trial and error or creation and destruction. Because acrylics dry so quickly I can layer on the paint and make changes easily. It usually takes me about a month to complete a painting, sometimes much longer. I’ll often hang an unfinished piece in my home and live with it awhile, and then haul it back into the studio for more work. Quite often there are a number of “paintings” buried beneath my final version. Sometimes these are totally obscured and sometimes elements peek through from these past versions.
