This year I am working on small gouache on paper. I guess you can consider gouache as an opaque water color, to put it simply. I do manipulate the medium a little bit by dragging a tool across the image. It gives me a soft quality I like.
I have completed about twenty, and these will be the basis of a book we plan to have available through the gallery. Below, there are examples of some of these paintings. They are small images, measuring about 3X3 inches each.
The paintings are intimate gestures of our stay in Umbria this year. These small pieces will develop into larger canvases back home, in the studio. It's all about inspiration on many different levels and layers.

Here are the examples of some of the pieces. I hope you like them.
