I call these paintings In-Betweens because I work on them between realistic paintings. In-Betweens are an exhale. I just let go. I paint with no preconceptions. They are a dream world of rhythmic colors and patterns dancing around the page. I begin with an old painting and scrub off most of the old paint with a wet sponge. Then I pencil in shapes and creatures, and glaze one color over another to create new patterns. As the layers deepen, a surreal landscape appears.
We’re always in-between— waking and sleeping, this breath and the next, the space between you and me called a relationship. Spaces between are alive with potential. How do you fill them?
