Painted Primarily with a palette knife, Reach was part of a family series of paintings showing the bonds between family members. Reach is about the first steps as toddlers explore the world around them. The original is acrylic on canvas 40x30 inches. I usually don't know what my final art piece will look like when I start, only the subject and basic composition. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genre, I developed a way to sculpt with paint, layer by layer. Creating a beautiful play of lights and shadows, full of unexpected colors side by side. It’s a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find so much peace when I’m creating.
