I've been developing a series of prints around the theme "The Life of a Gesture," including the two below. About the process, it's amazingly unsuccessful at times. Many of the pieces fail because the images are erased when wetted or hidden by the paint seeping through - this is something that's difficult to control. I've now been experimenting with minimal paint applications and glosses, so as not to lose as many lines before they dry. These two prints involve more collage than painting. Rather than working with old photographs directly, these are only suggestive of the physical forms that are present in some of the other pieces. 

* Willow (8x10)

* Bouquet of the Unattainable (I)  (10x10)
