Ave. f      24″ x 48″   diptych    (oil)   // in the studio -

this is one of the most recent paintings i’ve done and one of my favorites right now…i’ve been extremely interested the past six months in pushing more spontaneous brushwork and also to push exploration of the compositional space. I love this painting because i felt a huge breakthough in my understanding of paint while i was working on this–it comes closer i think, than any other painting I’ve done, to leaving you with my contemplations, meditations, and  a gestural, abstract space. I worked with brushes, palette knives, washes of paint countered by opaque blocks of color, and drew in with oil sticks and oil pastels. this painting is an abstract expression i hope you enjoy, and one i hope you get lost in as you follow the marks, scratches, and linear gestural movement.
