“I stumbled over the idea for these bird paintings while inspecting some textural parts of my abstract work. My original idea was to create 13 small paintings based on Wallace Steven's poem "Thirteen Ways of Looking at A Blackbird" but I got a bit sidetracked, in a good way. These acrylic paintings are created on canvas by applying different thicknesses of color, sanding, reapplying color, sanding etc until at the end I have a very textural piece that has the feel and appearance of a woodblock carving.”
