Painting always a strong interest of mine as well as an artistic balance for my commercial work at Manor. Through the years, many enjoyable and useful discoveries resulting from the application of various technical processes. Particularly valuable: the dynamics of color relationships.
Current emphasis on mixed media acrylic paint with collaged photography (and occasionally, text). The inspiration: specific colors, lively script, and the photographed faces of remarkable women. Many color studies using vertical lines reveal some interesting rhythms among painted layers.
And many possibilities emerge for collage layers when clearly defined spaces get juxtaposed with ephemeral areas. The resulting image is a mystical composition for contemplation.
