In 2010, I created a colorspace painting using a tool that I had not used before. After making that, I knew that I wanted to revisit that in the future and paint an entire surface using that tool. Fast forward to 2013, I mentioned to someone that painting, showed them pictures and they asked if I would make one for them. I, of course, said yes. I had an unlimited amount of time to make it. The color palate was chosen and it was created over a five month period. As I completed the painting earlier this year, I knew that I wanted to expand upon the newly discovered methods of texturing paint onto canvas. In the summer of 2014, I was asked by my dear friend Maria Hines to commission new works for her restaurant Golden Beetle. What started out as a Colorstretch idea ended up turning into a series of three, 36″ x 48″ paintings based on what I now call my Piecemeal technique. The resulting triptych, can now be seen on display at Golden Beetle Restaurant in the Ballard Neighborhood of Seattle. I’m looking forward to continue to experiment and further expand upon this in 2015 and beyond.
