When I began painting after college I struggled with using too much. Color. Even when I consciously tried to limit my palette I thought oh maybe a little of this. . .or this. . .and a whole lot of mud. Since I love taking photos I decided to use my own images as a place to begin. I created a series of paintings over photo transfers. At the end of this body of work (Postcards from Zancudo, Virtu Gallery/Anchorage ’07) I was essentially covering up the photo entirely and so began my leap into painting without the aid of photographs. That said I love taking photos, especially when I travel. After you browse through my paintings please check out the “painterly photo” gallery.
