Field of Tulips reminds me of the flower fields surrounding us driving south from Encinitas to the border. Hurtling by at 70 miles an hour, they were a blur of color and texture.

Oils and cold wax give me the ability to play with texture and give my work a visual ‘tactile’ quality. When ‘building’ a piece I often times will block out areas from receiving color. A piece may have several layers that each can play a part as I will scrape back dried paint or pull still wet paint out to create an interplay between the layers of an application. The surface of this piece is a mixture of matt areas with texture and smooth areas. This piece is two panels joined together.
