New works on paper

Lyrical_Stillness_TriptychThis piece is titled “Lyrical Stillness.” It is the middle piece that inspired the additional two for a triptych. The work is on Arches watercolor paper that is 60″ x 40″. So the total dimension for the piece is 60″ x 120″. After experimenting in monochromatic blacks and neutral colors a couple of years ago it was good to get back into this approach to my work. (Encouraged by my friend Adam to do so) This is a mixed media work incorporating acrylic, charcoal, and graphite. I like the immediate results from using the drawing materials. It is a quick release for my process which is about the impulse from the intuition for the next mark or paint stroke to make.
