THICK IMPASTO PAINTINGS
IT'S ABOUT FLORA, FAUNA AND THE HOPE OF THE MOUNTAIN WEST
A technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible. When dry, impasto provides texture; the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.
Similar to the nature inspired subjects themselves, the paintings are appreciated from varying perspectives, different light and multiple senses because they are dimensional.
“Nature inspires hope, and if you have hope, you have everything.”
