Ink & Oil Paint on Board
26″ x 26″

This is the second painting I’ve made starting with an ink drawing and then covering it with a layer of oil paint.  After letting it dry I lightly sanded it and then reinstated the original image.  I find the effect achieved by partially effacing the image and then restoring it adds a complexity not apparent in the original drawing.

Some small paintings referenced from photographs of the area in which I  live.   The small, square canvases remind me of tiles or quilt blocks and I am planning to continue adding paintings to this work to develop that allusion.  For individual photos of the paintings please go to the Place Series tab on my home page.
