I vary my work regularly, searching for
the new way of portraying the things I like to paint the most.
Exploration of oil paint on copper, aluminum, velvet (that one wasn't
sucessful), burlap, old books, postcards etc gives me the chance to
freshen up a bit. Each support offers it's own particular
is something that really appeals to me. Although it is most likely that
I have to work from photo references, I do not choose to copy the image
but rather try to portray the person in a more painterly manner. I look
for that special glance, that interesting turn of cheek or something
that makes the effort of a painted portrait special.
