i started working on some different surfaces. for the piece below, i took some prepared pumice and mixed it with medium and paint and used it to rough up areas of the canvas. then at a figure session, i tried to find areas to fit the figure between the rough areas. i think the result is interesting and will continue to try this approach for a while.[acrylic and pumice on canvas, 24x36]

i am working on a "collage" painting of some images that have either been in my mind or have struck me. i am fitting them together in what i hope can be something interesting to look at, as well as tell a story. here are a few glimpses of different components of the painting.[oil on canvas]
