The Making of a Painting

I find myself observing the world around me and what fascinates me.  I try to put that in my work. Trying to push my envelope, I did a painting on paper, cut it up and collaged it back together.  Then, I photographed it and drew back on top of it on my iPad. I printed that image out in black and white.

Later, in my studio, I was drinking a large glass of water and put my glass in front of the image. I loved how it looked, watery, obscure, bolder.  So I photographed it behind water. Then I started a new painting from the new photograph.  I simplified my palette, too.  I am constantly trying to stay engaged with the natural process of my curiosity and fascination and surprise myself.
