Time is a very important factor in the creation of my work. I use slow drying oil paints so I have to work on 3-4 paintings simultaneously. Each painting requires a specific buildup. This means I work with a rotation schedule and some paintings might take months from start to finish. Apart from the technical aspects, the drying also forces me to stand back and reflect on a painting in progress. After working in close contact on a canvas for a while, it's always refreshing to see it in another light and from a distance.
