Most of these mixed-media artworks are done on location, whether in someone’s house or out in a landscape. They reflect my actual experiences of the moment, and my interpretations of each location, whether near or far. Usually my mixed-media works on paper are done in four stages. First, each is drawn with charcoal, then sprayed to fix the composition. Next, each is outlined in color with Caran D’ache oil crayons, then painted with oil sticks. Lastly, each section is painted over with watercolors, creating a textured, resist effect.
