2009-present. Acrylic on canvas. What started out as just an experiment turned into a full series. I played around with continuity, the backgrounds flowing from one painting to another. At times, I was working on several paintings at once. Each canvas at one point was used as a palette for the previous painting(s). I played around before and during using abstraction, patterns, and designs. Using some makeshift printmaking methods, the right figure was then inserted into the background, and layers of colors were added, creating a unity in the painting. This series has been a successful and fun one, actually leading to several commissioned portraits in this manner. I am currently taking limited requests for portraits in this style, contact me for more information.
