About 20 years ago I made my first paintings on stone when I impulsively gathered up a pile of cinders from my studio rooftop and stuck them on a wood panel with roofing tar. That initial work from the late 1990’s morphed from painting simply on gravel and stones to higher relief objects like wood scraps, found objects, toys, mannequin heads, and at least half a billion bb’s. In this most recent series I have limited myself to oil paint on sand, stones, and rope, but we’ll see where it all goes.
