Welcome to the "small works" page. These paintings, all acrylic on wood panel, have an origin in my experiments with larger scaled paintings. They take their concepts from the same sources as the large works...visitations to ancient sites throughout the world, the process of  personal and collective memory and the inherent ways it is manipulated, changed, and surrendered to time. 

Though small in size, the process of creating these works is as involved as the large scale painting techniques, modified to accommodate  scale considerations and materials. The same materials (acrylic paint, wood panels) and the same extensive subtractive techniques employed in the large works are used here to unique affect.
