Freedom 1- 8″x10″, ink on paper, 2018
The Freedom Series is an ongoing group of pieces started in 2018. I had wanted to work on an ongoing project that had few limitations in an effort to avoid “painters block”. By choosing the word “freedom”, it allowed me to approach the paintings with just that, freedom. It could be abstract, landscape, or based on any other inspiration. The only real limitation is that I have chosen to work on paper. This decision was made as I feel you are more likely to produce more work, and take more risks, and experiment more when working on paper instead of canvas or board.
Freedom 2 – 8″x10″, ink on paper, 2018
The pieces, to this point, are an extension of the paintings I am currently doing on canvas. soft and hard lines, fields of color, lots of meshing color, and a nod to landscape.
Freedom 3: Sea – 5″x7″, ink on paper, 2018
Some are also proving to be studies for larger pieces.
Freedom 4: Trainspotting – 5″x7″, ink on paper, 2018
Several weeks in to this project, it is proving to be quite interesting, and quite beneficial, as it is very conducive to promoting a daily practice.
