Much of my work started in brush and ink drawing on cheap paper.  Originally done from countless life drawing sessions, I accumulated hundreds of images in line and gesture, often depicting figurative relationships. To preserve these images, I recast them in acrylic.  By photographing  and copying them digitally, I can then transfer them from paper to an acrylic sheet.  The acrylic medium is translucent and wax-like which allows the image to remain visible.  On top of this I apply layers of transparent oil paint to produce the final effect.  Underneath, the rough texture of the wallpaper provides an element of brush stroke and personality.   Often the end result takes on the appearance of fabric.  To distinguish this acrylic world from paper, allowing this work to remain undressed and daring to sag, I suspend these pieces with magnets.
