Re-Works

It has long been my practice to rework every drawing in current drawing pads whenever a new idea becomes clearer in a later drawing. Some pads are reworked many, many times.

In this exhibition I have extended the practice to paintings as well as drawings. New works are included with paintings that are re-worked.

The reworked ideas are still attempts to integrate mixed styles and ways of representing space, light and form through variations in line, pattern, color, etc.

Choices of subject or narrative are related partly to models and partly to imagination. I think I am just beginning to emphasize specific conventions of narration.
