Small Paintings

Artist Statement

I often create small paintings to work with new materials,  try out different colour palettes and to just plain play.  Even though the small piece can be very time consuming relative to the size, it seems like there is less pressure on me to create it when the “footprint” is smaller than the big canvas.  Often the ideas that you see on these pieces will develop into my larger paintings or even into entire series.   My definition of small is any canvas or wood substrate that is up to 12×12.
