Messages From a Deep Sleep (Under the July Moon), Acrylic on Canvas, 56 x 46", 2012
This series is being created using an experimental working process: I painted almost entirely with acrylics on unstretched canvas before adding oil. Additionally, I named the paintings before creating them, a new process for me and a good way for me to get out of a working habit. I wanted to trick my mind and help my soul roam free. I am working on four more paintings in the series titled:
Messages From the East, Messages From the North, Messages From the West (Beneath the Oregon Coast) and Messages From a Landscape. The new works in this series and more will be exhibited February, 2014 at the MHCC Gallery in Gresham, Oregon.
