I am drawn to express the visual feel of Nature, particularly the play of light over the liquidity of water. I paint on canvas superimposing many layers of an acrylic gel applied with a palette knife and zones of colors brushed on between the layers. The movement of the surface is being “sculpted” on canvas into angled planes as the image is slowly being worked out. The zones of colors created between the layers are broadening the depth and eventually the final image comes to life. Light penetrates into translucence and/or reflects on the glossy surface, creating a dynamic between the painted image and a more abstract zone held in the movement. I love to paint the liquidity of the water and the range of colors this element has to offer.
