As a recovering painter of all things realistic (think: every–vein-in-the-leaf), my style has evolved to the challenge of abstract. It’s all about loosening up, going with the flow, a sort of “giving in.” Color and texture are magnificent things!
I employ a variety of tools – but nary a brush. Vintage painting knives, some rusty, most bent, are the main implements I use in the creation of an abstract. Releasing the grip of the brush is immensely freeing – “free” being the most basic component of an abstraction.
After years of painting in oil, I’m currently enjoying the immediacy, the necessary spontaneity that acrylics require. You must think fast, work fast. You know, work harder, work smarter. It’s an organic, instinctual process.
You’ll find the edges…
