Experimenting with Copper
Experimentation is a key ingedient to continuing to create new work. I've been wanting to try painting on copper for many years. As my first attempt i dove into painting this very large triptych. I found the copper very agreeable to oil paint. I left much of the copper showong as part of the design. I had to be very selctive with my brush strokes because there's is no going back. The painting is called, Tempest and the size including the frame is 50 x 82 inches.

I find this triptych quite entertaining, and for some reason it strangely reminds me of my childhood in a murky mysterious way.

- Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world. How the wind can create a ripple in a pond, a flock of birds descending on a field, or how sunlight can illuminate the side of a building are small miracles that happen all around us. Instead of seeking out subject matter to paint, I simply pay attention to the nuances in my surroundings. My goal is to turn what may be considered mundane or ordinary into the sublime.
