I find myself most comfortable when away from the tradition of easel and canvas. I am often on my hands and knees actively engaged with the drawing, my bare feet thick in charcoal and oil bar. Outdoors, I tape charcoal onto the tip of a 3-foot stick to use as my drawing tool. Using these techniques allow for a more natural, spontaneous, and spirited drawing. These organic movements are revealed in my landscape work through juxtaposing patterns and colors of the farmlands and vineyards of northern Michigan.Runs through February 27.
