OIL ON PAPER
The oil on paper are preliminary thoughts for new directions; playgrounds for tossing, swinging and kicking around the visual forms; and, creating unification of diverse ideas with appropriate styles.This can happen because there is little investment of time and money in the materials.  I can gesso about ten pieces of cotton paper and even put a tint of color on the background in a day.  I will put them up on a wall and paint them all at the same time by brushing oils directly on the gessoed surface.  It is easy to try out new ideas this way. If the painting does not work, I can wipe the paint off the paper and start again.  A few paintings, completed after a day’s work, will stand finished with a fresh unlabored quality.  Most paintings will take several weeks to complete.  A very small number of them,  I will come back to complete years later. These paintings, created over time, loose the easy feeling of the few that are made in a day but take on a quality that is complex in message and painting surface, similar to my larger canvases.
