GOUACHE PAINTINGS

I began working with gouache because I had run out of some watercolor and a friend gave me some tubes of gouache paint. Because of the opacity and flexibility of gouache I really love the medium. I also moved from being in the city to a bit of country just outside of Santa Fe proper at the end of 1992. All of the smaller pieces shown here were done during a 2 month period while waiting for a house and staying with a friend (now my wife) and working on the kitchen table. Like everything else, the paperwork began to take different shapes and I did a lot of collage work combining torn etchings, and other gouache paintings.
