Uprooted

Uprooted 12X12 Oil on canvas done with a palette knife

I am starting some of these paintings with a Notan done with black gesso.  I choose a few colors to work with and then let the painting speak to me.  It is very intuitive and often doesn't work.  When I start to see an image that in my mind resurrects a memory I tend to follow that direction.

This painting started with brushwork and then I switched to the palette knife.  I also used a comb for some different line effects.
