My favorite technique, squaring off color blocks to explore cubism and unite the whole, helps me bring together all elements of the painting into relationships of shapes whether representational or abstract. Using only square brushes creates block – like color while I develop the design using water based paint on prepared board. Lines are added or subtracted as the work progresses.
Giving back to the community through donations of paintings to KVIE and the Bear Valley Music Festival’s silent auction is very satisfying.
I’m always looking for new solutions, studying with nationally known artists, searching for new locations or working in my studio. I never expect to arrive at a perfect technique. What would be left to strive for?
