Figurative work: Self-portraits – Abstractions. My painting experiments with texture and subject matter: layers of luminous thin transparencies, palette knife application, recognizable things, pure abstraction – providing endless ideas for my work. Early on, I found painting directly from landscape, the live model, and combination of the two, to be an important tool for learning to see colors and values.
