Small New Mexico Landscapes
I`m working on a big boggy oil painting and photographing each stage. I like seeing order emerge out of the chaos and even though I will paint it, I can never remember how. Most decisions in the process are automatic revisions and additions done in reaction to what I just did previously. These impulses are not verbal but I`ve been asked to make them so when I teach. That`s a fair request so when I do, it`s like watching myself. Sometimes I learn something too and think I should do that more often.
These are little paintings from the early 90`s, maybe a bit more allegorical than they are now but it`s obvious from my work that I find something restorative and even redemptive in nature. I think most of us do.
