|Virginia June Series #4, acrylic & ink on paper, 2015|
Another recent portrait that I finished yesterday. I always begin with a piece of paper and think that I'm just going to do a quick sketch to warm up, but hours later, I inevitably finish with a complete portrait painting. And than I think, why didn't I work on a canvas or panel instead? It's all psychological…paper seems less daunting and less of a commitment than working on canvas or wood. But it's not really. You can't paint over a painting on paper and start over like you can with a painting on canvas or wood.
