6 x 6" gouache on masonite panel painting of a stack cookbooks. This is a study for a larger oil painting.

All of my work has something to do with the idea of "home". I'm fascinated by the small bits of our world that stabilize us and that can so quickly disappear. Whether it be a still life of very personal items or a presidential portrait, each painting has a quality that makes me feel both comforted and anxious. The depicted cookbooks belonged to my Nana, Virginia, and are very important to me.

I really like working with gouache due to its opacity and how quickly it dries. Because it is a water-based paint, like watercolor, gouache paintings should not be exposed to moisture and ideally should be framed behind UV shielding glass.
