Satisfaction in the Details

My paintings are built up on several layers, and the final layers are all about the details.

The satisfaction is in the details. Before I get to this point, the beginning stages, for me, can sometimes be frustrating. A bit of a struggle. I can sometimes feel like I lose focus on what the initial interest and idea and object was all about. In the beginning stages, things can seem blurry.

I’ll have 20 paintings for my upcoming exhibition in Sacramento, and the final six paintings are a bit smaller than I usually work. I like the way they come in to focus more quickly. I’m enjoying the more intimate feeling of these smaller paintings.
