I always have an interesting time creating works.

Sometimes I'm afraid of what the composition should embrace. The process I undergo takes time. Every new element- layer- of the work- has the potential to steal the glory of the work past- in its own ground (surface/painting area). Some of these works, such as this one called 'Caveat'- the rendering of the figure has time into it. I am actually very careful for every speck of dust on a piece. Even those that are a result of coaxed chaos. So when we proceed to add a background- it cannot take away from the work. That's tricky.

The part on the upper right that looks like yellow ochre- is actually 'gold' enamel, made by 'One Shot'. It's high quality enamel- the pigment is bronze powder. Here's an image of the piece in real life- because the gold effect cannot be seen on a scanner..

Finally.. Here are some close up shots- I think they are lovely. When I look at work I see it close to my nose first- and then from far away. These shots remind me of inspecting a work in person.
