I use mainly oil on canvas . I also use acrylic paint . The choice depends on the subject and I let the specific quality of the painting envisioned dictate the choice of medium used.
I am most often drawn to still life and figurative representation. The spaces in and around the objects as well as the objects themselves create a living tension that resolves on the canvas.
Inspiration comes from a feeling or a desire to feel the weight of objects and how space connects or interlocks the composition. Inspiration I think mostly originates from within maybe initiated by what I might see and experience viscerally.
