I have sensed a self-imposed constraint on my work seemingly resonating from the tension revealed as I move through a piece. Precision in execution to record the observation in a literal way or let the paint speak through me? To some greater extent I believe I've given the paint and color a dominant voice although on balance the work is realist in structure.
I attended Julie's program to explore the possibilities and certainly feel the time was so well spent. In addition to an examination of contemporary abstraction we used materials which, to a large degree, I have ignored in my work. Who would know that acrylic paint might be fun?
Additionally, the opportunity to share with a group of accomplished art professionals, art educators and recognized, exhibited painters was an extraordinary dividend.
Here a a few of my pieces from the workshop.
