Works and Words

Large Works on Canvas V
These paintings are begun with charcoal gesture, as are the mixed media works. The oil paint with its layers and viscosity, slows down the process of composing. These works, evolved out of the works on paper and done in the same time frame, begin to settle down. The subject matter, as it is fussed over, takes on a formal, almost classical portrait quality.
