oil on canvas 12" x 18"
Probably the single best thing about painting is the heightening of the senses that comes about as one becomes absorbed in the process. This happens, not because making paintings is easy or simple, but for the very opposite reasons. The complete engagement with all aspects functioning simultaneously - not only color and shape and space and form - but also paint and surface quality, gesture and knife / brushwork - all these are in the air like juggling knives. Ignore any one aspect at your own peril.
