These paintings are created using egg tempera on gesso panels. Each consists of layers and layers of marks, alternating layers of opaque and translucent paint. Sometimes I sponge on thin layers of paint. The many layers creates the luminosity that is unique to egg tempera. They are also the reason each piece takes up to four or five months to paint.
