Thoughts from my studio about artwork; new pieces as well as those things that have have remained hidden in my flat file...

Response to JT's Question

Saturation Point
oil and acrylic on birch panel

JT Kirkland asked "In Surface Disturbance you seem to be bringing more of a feel of an environment. I sense something atmospheric but also grounded. Can you talk a bit about this... is this something you're going for?"
I'm hoping that the bulk of the new paintings exude both qualities at once, and explore the overlap of the two. The "depth of field" has transitioned in these paintings from the last year. Transparency, depth and opacity play through the numerous layers (25-30 or more some almost completely transparent). Some of this comes through in the digital images, but the perception of subtle variation is hindered compared to seeing the actual object.
