Acrylic on reused Lenox 100 paper
I started the Garden Collection series, a group of 8” x 8” paintings on paper, in 2019. They are based on
sketches of the flowers and plants in my garden. Each image is reduced to simply shapes and forms that
allows brush marks to create texture and complexity.
While working on these small images I develop a close relationship with each piece (working and
reworking), and I wanted to explore reproducing the images at a larger scale. I use a grid process to
transfer the image and the history of this process becomes part of the final painting.
