A Closer Look
Close up Images twisted and distorted for a different view and closer look at artwork.
A different view of a different painting. The paint forms burning lines, almost like a long fuse that is capable of exploding at any moment.
"When the past is blurred we can truly begin moving forward." 'The Way Up' is a piece meant to keep us wanting more. Always aiming for the stars and never satisfied with anything else.
"We are never alone, if we have ourselves" Lines and quadrants formed by paint reminds us that even in complete chaos, there is always order. It sometimes just takes a closer look.
Close up reminds us to never stop moving, there is always more we can accomplish and are capable of! It feels as though we are being pulled backwards into a mist or haze. That is Greatness testing us, we must simply answer the call.
When you 'Look Closer Than You Think' you should, it always reveals something very special.
Magnified look at "Red Squares" where the paint has been poured onto the canvas then rolled out delicately forming small vascular compartments with veins traveling through the sub-system of the painting, delivering color, feeling, and life wherever it is needed. This loose feeling contrasts the rather rigid distant look of "Red Squares", however the perfect combination of the two can have you lost in this piece, traveling to every inch of the canvas.
Close up view of "Not Just A Walk In The Park" showing the splatter and almost thrown paint technique used. Built up paint and a fast roller helped with some of the paint strands overlapping in crossing patterns. Allowing you to step directly into the image and take a little unorthodox of a trip through the park.
Another Detail shot, again showing the depth created by overlapping planes of yellows, greens, and black, mixed with the fragile strands of paint delicately placed and "balancing" on
Close Up Detail Shot from Commisioned Piece "A Different Light". Thick Paint on Canvas, tools used included brush, palette knife, spoons, and hair brush.
Gold Beach Grass painted on thick with a hair brush, acrylic paint mixed with a thick blending medium allowed for a fairly thick but still stringy texture. This mixture of paint and technique gave a very unique feel to the beach grass and predominantly the foreground of "A Different Light"
Detailed image of "Cherry Blossom 3" including a better look at the Contour style of the tree contrasted with the thick paint added after, to give texture and create a feeling of space and depth beyond the pink leaves.
Detail Image of "Cherry Blossom 3" including a look at a Knot of the Tree with several big Cherry Blossom clusters, looking into the center and focal point of each flower and overall piece.
