Open Studio Tour
For my portraits I start with a photograph. I paint with oils on canvas mostly, but I love to paint on linen when I can. Digitally I also use a photograph for reference. For my more abstract work I only use what is going on inside my head. A feeling, a mood, energy. I do my best to not let the chatter in my head get in the way of painting and creating. That seems to be the biggest obstacle.
