Man in His Garden

"Man in His Garden" 18"x18", oil
A landmark painting for me, this painting exhibits a style and motif, I care to pursue.
The paint itself is carved and sculptural. Entirely painted with a pallet knife. I find colors remain cleaner and is very tactile, achieving my effort to create a painting that becomes an artifact or something more than merely a pictoral representation and becoming something that shares the attributes of sculpture or an intaglio print or even a collage. I can feature pursuing this direction to the extent of using plaster and tile.
