Green and Red
This is a self-portrait I worked on during my summer Painting I course at Georgetown. There are two additional images on this page, exposing various unfinished stages of the painting. The idea behind the piece is simple. I wanted to strike a balance between the inherent properties of oil paint and my likeness. This piece was meant to reflect not just my visage, but also the density and buttery quality of oils.

  • 12" x 16"

Timeline

My work has changed a lot over the years. The reason it has varied so greatly is due to the non-linear experiential way in which I learned this craft as well as a need to keep my work personally exciting.

Some artists work in the same style or approach to painting over decades. However, I need to tinker, experiment and get myself into trouble. It is as much about the discovery and the journey as it is the end result.
