Early Work


I have placed these images in approximately the order they were done, starting with two of the first paintings I ever did. I was squirting the paint right out of the tube and onto the canvas, and wondering why the results did not look like Dali. I spent a month in the library researching technique and ended up buying Copal Gel and Medium, the result was the change in the fourth image on top (Gaudi Wall).From there I was on my way to teaching myself technique, reading Dali's "50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship",(Many of the devices and ornaments in this book I actually made) and  facing the battle of classical techniques.
