SCALE

The scale of my work is important. After all, they are physical paintings, not digital. They stand on their own as isolated digital images, but they were designed to be a set physical size and are best seen as such - at scale. I paint large on purpose. The epic has always called to me. Because I paint large, I am able to pump my works full of stylistic details and subtlety. The challenge of creating a large cohesive painting is rewarding. The larger I paint it, the tougher it is to tie everything together into harmony; it's much easier to see an entire painting if its the size of a piece of paper - I can only see my entire paintings when I leave the easel and take a huge step back.
