Collection: Patinas: Beautiful With Age

Patina:  a surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use.

These richness of surface quality resulting from a convergence of mystery and beauty is the true subject here. In desperation to save some "over-worked" canvases, I realized that the myriad layers of paint offered an invitation to explore more deeply the paint and the process. This series features my most physical surfaces with expansive paint. The inspiration of simply asking, "what if?" and letting the question become the answer is what makes this work breath.
