Paintings created at their own pace in the studio, sometimes working a single piece over dozens of separate sessions with no pressure, rush, or timeline.
These paintings were created during live performances in public settings, often on stage with live musicians, most of these emerge with no plan, just spontaneous art-making reacting to the music and the moment. Usually created from start to finish in under 3 hours and auctioned on site.
Easel out in the wind, racing to capture the moment's light before it's gone, or the painting blows over. Typically fast paintings, chasing the light for an hour or less.
Single Session Paintings
For lack of a better term, these pieces are quickly done, sometimes in two sessions, but entirely different in approach to my other studio work. These are often commissions, based on photos provided by clients.
