Anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge fan of black and white patterns - in tile, in fabrics, in art, in graphics...you name it, if its black and white, I love it. I have taken that inspiration and channeled it in some recent paintings. Removing the color from these paintings has challenged me to focus on creating compositions out of form and texture instead of color, and breaking down my painting process to a more simplified form. I think this process will only improve my future paintings, even the colorful ones!
