For some reason I'm always drawn to art media which force me to release control of the outcome. I enter my studio with a head full of technicolor dreams intending to push some materials around. For an hour or most of a day I do my part. Then, I wait. I have to step back to allow the inherent nature of the material to take over to and contract, cure, heat up or cool down. I get to shape the experience, but I don't get to force things. On a good day, this is a beautiful partnership. The finished product contains pleasant surprises I could not have planned and serves the medium much better than sitting in a can on my shelf would have done.

Recently I began to layer painting in acrylic with cast objects and an epoxy or eco-poxy pigmented overlay. The results are really visually sexy and allow me to build out paintings into space.
