The works displayed in this group are, for the most part, traditional oil and acrylic paintings done in 'en plein air' style (painted outdoors from life). or in a studio setup from live models.
Secondly, I am interested in the interaction of realism and abstraction. While I am a realistic painter, I also prefer to incorporate abstraction, as this leaves portions of the work for the viewers to decipher and identify for themselves. I like to engage the viewer in this way--to lead them on a journey through the painting.
