A pond in the woods frozen over in winter. Oil paint is mixed with cold wax medium to make the paint layers somewhat transparent and the completed work matte finish. Painted with palette knives in an abstract style.
Art is my outlet. It is an outlet for expression - both external and internal. Although I took drawing and painting classes in college and painted during that time, I am largely self-taught. Returning to painting over the last couple years after a lengthy period of inactivity, I discovered that my desire to express myself in paint had not dimmed but instead was stronger than ever.
