Tree Studies Alcohol Ink on Ceramic Tile & Yupo Paper
"Begin Again" Abstract Floral Studies Alcohol Ink on Canvas A sort of "Peter Kitchell meets Georgia O'Keefe", "Begin Again", marks a breakthrough in my work with alcohol ink: I'm finally making the paintings I've always wanted to make! Canvas in sizes ranging from 8x8" to 36x48" are the substrate for these inky abstracts resembling blooming flowers and space nebulae. In this brushless process, inks are poured directly onto the canvas, and spread and blended by tipping the canvas in different directions. Two paintings from the series were juried into a June 2017 exhibit at Studio Channel Island Gallery in Camarillo, California.

This process begins with a layer of textured molding paste, into which the designs are carved using a pottery tool. The color is applied using thin paint washes. Final layers of gloss gel and varnish result in a finished piece which looks more like ceramic tile than a painting. The panels are mounted to a cradled birch panel using a foam core spacers, raising the artwork above the panel, for a 3-dimensional presentation.
