Oil on Linen
As I look back on all the paintings I have done over the years, I realize that I am painting with less detail. Years ago I would get so wrapped up in the details. And when a painting was finished, I was rarely happy with the result. Now my goal is to capture the essence of what I am trying to say. My paintings have become much more distilled.
No longer do I sit when painting. I constantly stand in front of the easel. This gives the painting focus and energy. I also back up every so often to see just exactly where the painting is going.
These days, my paintings seem to come from somewhere in my subconscious.
