paint


I paint.
Paint is what I use to pay attention to the world.
Earth and oil; sometimes buttery, sometimes grainy, gritty.
But it's a medium--a via--a path toward representing how I see.
Why hide it: these clumps and drips and ridges and smears?
the holy family no. 24

about me

My photo

These studio notes are scraps of poetry and ideas that feed my work as a painter. I hope they establish a bit of context for the paintings and my intention in making them. Whatever I paint, I’m trying to create some space for us to sit with the questions that are not meant to be answered.
