Paintings - Views

5 Like a hike with one step after another, the difficulty of climbing can be challenging and somewhat daunting. New dilemmas and puzzles present themselves with every painting. I always start by playing with transparent or fluorescent colors. After two or three layers of fun, I begin to “find” the image. Lately, I’ve been using my hiking to inspire and guide the playful layers towards the grand views I’ve witnessed first-hand. The mixed media hasn’t felt necessary, but a large canvas has.
