These paintings began during my undergraduate studies as a way to save the paint I had mixed on my palette. I hated throwing out the paint I had mixed, even if it was just a small amount, so I began using my palette knife to scrape the paint from my palette and apply it onto a small 10"x10" canvas. The canvas accumilated quiet a bit of paint throughout the next couple of years until I finally retired it and moved onto another canvas. All of the canvas below follow a similar pattern and where created throughout many sessions.
