Tactility as equal partner.
Most proud I am of the tactility exhibited in the painting "2016 No.4". My level of tactile conscious is rapidly expanding. This measure, which is so much a part of oil painting, has always been important to me, but has not always been easily available. Struggling for emotive and authentic forms has preoccupied me far too long. I welcome the enhanced sensuality of touch that is now part of every mark I make. A major goal is to allow this complementary tactility to be equal in importance to form, composition, light, and color.
Yesterday was a good day for me. All three of the images I worked upon have emotional stature. That is a great measure of success!
