Stories aren't my thing, but color and texture is. I painted this using a mixture of acrylic, water media, spray paint, and various oil pastels all woven between layers of varnish to prevent any layer from merging with other layers. This is painted on a piece of plywood that I found and comes with the amazing texture and color of the wood, as well as all the beat up edges.
“Paint for f*cking paint” as an old professor told me. To this date the statement still holds true in my work. I paint simply for the sake of painting while capturing a moment full of color and expression. In the end I strive to achieve my goal that every inch of the painting needs to be interesting. I'm a painter currently living in Portland Oregon. Between web design and painting I spend a good deal of my time working with the arts. My current motivation is to paint at least two full paintings each week while trying to improve my style and expression with each new piece.
