My current body of work is small paintings on paper. These paintings are studies. They are very much influenced by my relationship to the land, the people, and my life spent in the Southwestern United States, primarily New Mexico.
I use these paintings as a personal journaling tool, write on them, about what the inspiration for the painting may have been; be it a broken piece of 13th century pottery, a vivid sunset or a series of wind eroded mesas.
This creates a record, a history, a timeline the viewer can become involved with, share their story, be a part of the painting, a part of the story.
