Each unique painting represents an individual state of emotion. The selected colors serve as themes or backdrops to the textural and tonal dramas played out on the canvases. To do this, I have applied several layers of paint to the canvases. Each coating is allowed to to dry before the application of the next layer. After each coating has dried, specific areas are sanded and scrapped as necessary. Some colors are applied with palatte knife and brush while other colors are applied with cloths or sponges. Each subsequent coating of paint is applied more thinly than the previous layer to allow a periodic interplay of light from beneath the surface and to create a dialogue with the resulting textures. When necessary, oil pastel, charcoal and chalk are added to enhance the feeling of depth. Frequently, powdered or ground-up materials are also applied to roughen the surfaces and create more contrast. When the colors, tones and textures have arrived at what I consider to be a balance; the painting is finished. The titles of the paintings are based on what I see in them at the point of completion.
