CLIFF CITY (below): Various layers of oil paint and cold Wax Medium are applied to a panel. As one layer dries, another layer of contrasting color is applied to the entire panel to building many layers. Sections of layers can be scraped off to reveal previous layers. This process creates a variety of shapes. Once I decide what the image should depict, I work to enhance it, using line, more scraping, additional colors and collage. Finally, the entire image is pulled together to impart the impact of the subject residing in my memory and imagination.
