My visual diary... I love doing small daily oil paintings. They have an immediate freshness about them. Whatever you are thinking about that day sort of goes into them, almost like a visual diary. About the medium, oil paint - I like the creamy color intense luscious look of oil paint.
I like making brushstrokes that bring out that quality in the paint.
About the small 6x6 inch format, I try out new ideas, new colors, new subject matter from day to day, because of the small format. It is very freeing to be able to paint something and get it out relatively quickly.
I have larger work available at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River, Oregon and Art on the Boulevard, Vancouver, Washington.
