Road Works

November 13, 2017

I recently finished a mini-series of oil paintings inspired by comics and my own neighborhood. These are the streets where I live rearranged as a morning drive.


I mentioned my panel-making process in an earlier post. This is how I prepare my canvases. I use tape and overlays of paint to acquire a range of tones in the formal shapes I want for the final piece. From these colors, I  select only one or two as the painting develops.


From sunlit swatches of color to tiny landscapes glimpsed from a moving car, these paintings attempt to translate a perceptual experience as well as a temporal sequence using color contrasts and the comics layout.
