Playing With Paint—Mixing and Matching

Playing With Paint—Mixing and Matching

I've heard (but not watched) those videos that get people addicted to watching something incredibly boring because it's oh-so-soothing. Below are 4-short videos (one minute each) of me mixing paint. Hmm, will this have the same effect on viewers?? Perhaps I'll finally...

Controlled Chaos??

Controlled Chaos??

Above is "Askew #108", 72"x72", Acrylic on panel. Currently being shown at FOUND:RE Contemporary Gallery, Phoenix, through November 25. Well, here I am. In the studio where I've more or less been for the past year & 1/2. I feel very lucky to have this beautiful...

It Took a Year+, “Askew #101”

It took over a year to create "Askew #101" at 8'x8', a lot of paint, a lot of sweat and blood (maybe a few tears). As I went along I tried to document my progress. Sometimes I skipped months at a time but overall I did pretty well in taking the occasional snapshot....

Creating a Very Large Painting—A Photo Essay

I started my "Askew" series several years ago as an experiment, using 10"x10" panels. Gradually I increased the size, each time wondering if my concept would hold up. It did and I continued to increase the size. Below I'm prepping 4-36"x36" panels which will become...
