A beautiful family. Beautiful portrait.
I spent some time trying to categorize my style because there is power in naming things. This work is closest to what I've worked toward in painting outside of commercial work. It's been awhile since I've released any of my private studio work. I love documenting homes and faces. I also love getting lost in a work with no visual reference. I kept looking around for a photo to refer to and there was relief when I had to keep reminding myself that the only reference for this work is inward and abstract.

Feeling like Richter with my swing fromabstract realism to straight shooting abstract. "I would like to say to those who think of my pictures as serene, whether in friendship or mere observation, that I have imprisoned the most utter violence in every inch of their surface."
I just can't help myself. Water is summer.
This one took awhile since we had two weeks of visitors. Or maybe because I wanted to live in this misty utopia for as long as possible.
Our basement is welcoming with open arms to both old and new wood. New stretchers are coming together for a new oil on canvas series. Coming soon.
You've been staring at the valleys and peaks of your friend's faces for an extensive amount of time.
