My paintings grow from a simple idea into a series. Research often involves a series of small thumbnails. Art school years ingrained my life long working methods, habits which feel comfortable and hard to change. This bird doodle is approx 2 by 3 inches, similar in size to others on this page.
Here are three series of small design ‘doodles’ done talking to a client who had something in mind and images help us meld our thoughts – The first is vertical, others broader. The process helped them understand what elements the piece wanted to capture from a memory filled property, now sold to a new owner. (None of these doodles resemble the final piece.)
