Untitled

This is an experimental work, oil on canvas. It is important for an artist to have an identifiable style and to be consistent. Amateurs will sometimes jump all over the place. On their websites you are likely to see paintings of different styles, including attempts at abstraction, and even more feeble attempts at realism, mixed with photographs, and maybe even jewelery. The professional, on the other hand, will work on and develop a unique style over time and pretty much stick with that, making changes slowly, so as not to upset gallery owners and clients.

At the same time, an artist should not become stagnant, and it is necessary to experiment. This is such a painting. It is looser and less rigid than some of the more geometric paintings I've done. It explores the line between when a bit of paint on the canvas starts to look like a recognizable image.
