Queen and Her Jacks
I work in oil on gesso-prepared masonite panels. My recent works are narrative. I spend a considerable amount of time thinking of themes and contemplating or searching for images that would best translate the story. The process of painting really becomes a journey for me, as I add or delete images as the work progresses. My work is rather detailed. I paint in layers, building up images through 4-6 layers. The final layers provide the opportunity to create more detail. This is my favorite time while working on a painting. Objects come to life and I know I am getting close to completion.
