Here I am in the studio working on one of the paintings that will be shown with Paper Mountain and Sky Project starting next week.
I began the painting in acrylic. The paint’s rapid drying time allows me to work quickly, putting down layers of paint as I figure out the direction of the painting. You’ll notice when I swap carts that I am switching to oil paint. These dry more slowly and have a texture I really enjoy. They are very creamy and allow me to work wet into wet for relatively long periods of time.
Catch these paintings with my Paper Mountain installation and Sky Project in the exhibit Beyond the Mountain at Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art opening March 15th.
