Oil pencil is blended with turpentine to attain a brilliant saturation of color. Each layer of pencil is put down one at time, followed by a brushing of turpentine, which moves and blends the color to the exact location and consistency.
Each painting is framed under my direction to ensure the highest artistic and preservation standards.
I continue to search for a new visual language between the viewer and myself. Some have described my work as "expressionist realism". I search for expression not imitation relationships rather than realism. I remain open to inspired moments and follow the direction that those moments take me to. Drawing continues to be the core element of my creations. I resist the temptation to be detailed and rely on visual tension and dynamic rhythms of color and light to convey my imagery. . . B.J.
