Recent Work in California Art Studio

Acrylic on Canvas, 'Sports Play'.

Recently, I've been working primarily with charcoal, pastels and acrylic on canvases.  Some are stretched over wooden frames, others I'm stapling directly to the wall of my studio.   I'm saturating the canvases with water and keeping wet while working - the air is very dry in the California desert, and the heat tends to make the paints dry quickly.  Each painting is developed over multiple sessions, and worked at varying levels of impasto and dryness.

I'll update the blog with some of my larger works in the coming days, so stay tuned.
