A Thousand And One Caverns: Adventures In The Ice Cave. 40" x 102 x 30"/ 76cm
I began this painting thinking about black and how that tube of paint doesn't get used very much. So I began this as a black and white painting, then added ink blue, and the rest is history. You may find a little black peeking through here and there, but you'd really have to hunt!
I love the poetry of color and the physicality of the paint, whether it's thick or fluid. It's always colors that move me and there is an adventure of discovery, of seeing how they look on the painting surface and I work to place them so an energetic balance is achieved in combination with the deliciousness of the pigments. The acrylic paints I use are made by Golden in New York. This employee-owned company inspires me with its commitment to quality and your and my assurance that the paints in the painting you enjoy have excellent light fastness and materials, are made ethically and in work conditions we want for ourselves.
