in oils brings everything into focus. I have had to work in all
types of media to make a living as an artist and I pride myself
on doing well in all of them, but oils…they’re special.
Perhaps it’s the sense of history and tradition that makes
them unique. There is also something extraordinary about they
way you can push the pigments around a canvas. Oil has a luminosity,
a gem-like glow.
Moving the to Southwest has given me new ideas for painting, and
for the first time, I am doing landscapes and flowers, along with
the figure studies I love so much."
