The Sea
"The Sea", As the work was getting bigger and heavier on wood, I made a switch to a lighter material which was paper on stretched linen. This also allowed me to bring in the drawing aspects that I long desired to incorporate. Three canvases make up this 12 foot piece, the top half is painted with flash paint and then filled in with thousands of colored pencil lines adding another layer. Ballpoint pen lines are drawn in the middle ground suggesting lightness and movement; the bottom portion is a large spill of PVA layered sand and shells from the beach. Once again in this painting I am trying to see how close I can get to that point where something abstract becomes something else by mere suggestion.
