* I mull my own oil paints so that I can incorporate minerals like shungite, cinnibar, rhodonite, and malachite.

** Some of these minerals turn translucent in oil. I apply a dozen or more layers to achieve a prismatic finish.

*** The result is a continuous hue-shift, responsive to light and time of day. Like looking into a rainbow that never fades.

****You know that feeling of spaciousness, peace, when there’s no urgency to do anything other than to be?

***** That’s what I see when I paint. And that’s why I paint what I see.   ︎  ︎
