I enjoy floral painting and I receive great satisfaction when I am out in nature. My style leans towards abstract expressionism. My paintings are contemporary and abstract. I have a general process which begins with a ground, if I am using a canvas. Then either way, I draw out my composition using a pencil, a thin paintbrush or a chalk pastel. I paint with the medium I am using at the time. My favorites are gouache, oil and acrylic. I am loving acrylics lately because I have gained insight into a new technique. I have used this on a few of my older pieces. (As long as a painting is in my studio, it is not finished until it leaves my studio.) And I am currently applying that technique to a new group of artwork.
