When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.
I am playing with Juvenile Mug shots and these are my latest two. Unfortunately there is not a shortage of reference material. The one thing in common is they look lost and there is a sadness in the eyes that I wonder if they will ever overcome.
