This fuzzy red texture is what you get when you boil a beat up 1oz., 10-year-ish-old veg tanned goatskin split and hold it up to the light. All the shrunken scrape marks make a beautiful pattern. After stretching, the leather dries into a rock-solid sheet around a millimeter thick. Flip through the photos for a before-and-after, and note the ruler. #leatherwork#experimental#materials#WIP
I’ve always found painting to be therapeutic and necessary. I have to do it. It's all about the process - movement, color, layers, and forms. However, after about 20 years since I've worked with oil paints, I've been reminded of how fun it is to look at something and find the beautiful details and flaws - along with the lovely smell of solvents and fumes. The back and forth between abstract and more realistic images has always appealed to me. There's an endgame in mind for the left, but much like life, art takes turns right on the canvas. The right is much more carefree, inspired by a few different types of flowers. The left is with oil paint and the right is with acrylic.
Both are works in progress.🤞
