I was trained in abstract art, realism and the Renaissance method. I use all these techniques to create movement, layers in my Abstract work! I love oils because of the richness of the paint surface. The slow drying layers create a movement in the images that can be effortlessly created only by using oils. I also use oil paints in my mixed media works.
The 10 paintings shown below are all 4' x 5'. They are a series that has scripture painted in and out repeatedly until it is only a faint image. The idea is that God's words are with us even if we can not lay eyes on them or even remember them exactly. The scripture is painted in a readable manner on the side of the canvases.
