The oil paintings in Building Cranes and Butterfly Wings represent a dichotomy. Structure, reason, grounded, strong, and inevitable contrasted with spontaneous, delightful, fragile, transitory and airborne. The paintings in this series explore layering continuous lines over initial paintings of Portland streets and then reworking the paintings with the new information the lines provide. It is a process that is something like putting a puzzle together.
