My artist eye is happiest when I have a variety of textures and surfaces to bounce or absorb light in my compositions. Mixing media is a satisfying way to achieve that. The mixing of of surfaces enhances what I have chosen for color, line and subject. All of it works together in a way that is arresting but restful. Peaceful is a word often applied to my work.
