For several years I have been collecting discarded wood from several woodworkers in my studio building. I love them for their weathering and geometries. Not knowing anything about their origin or purpose, yet seeing them solely as structural elements for 3 dimensional work is very freeing.

Wood aligns with my affinity for natural materials. Many processes are used: sanding, ink staining, pigment painting, oxidizing, paper mounting, gluing, and sometimes adding remnants of experiments from my flat files. They are a continuation of my 2D Terrain study series, which is continuing as I work on large paintings.
