I work almost every day, usually three to five hours at a time. Work begins with the placement of something on the paper. The drawings are anything but drawings. They are on paper, but other than that, they are a combination of color supplied by house paint, pastels, oil sticks, and graphite. Additions to the surface are applied with glue and are Xerox copies, newspapers, maps, and sewing patterns. I work quickly and when I look back, I am always surprised at what I have done. Hopefully they remain fresh as if they were recently completed. I like that quality about them.
