Recently in the studio, I’ve felt the desire for play. I take my work seriously and have not allowed myself to experiment with my medium in a long time. Until this week.
I brewed some coffee and laid out 4 canvases on which I wanted to explore new marks. As I built up each panel, I tried my usual mark making mixed with dramatic smears, crisp edges, new colors, and quirky doodles. I even diluted some paint for a translucent, almost watercolor-like effect in some places. The results are distinctively different from my other work, but still show an element of my style.
