“Simple forms are consistent in all of my artwork and I enjoy working in series offering relationships, discovery and contrasts. My paintings are built of many thin layers of oil or acrylic paint using a limited palette of bold colors on large canvases or wood panels. Subsequent layers allow the under-paint to peek through and transparent glazes give the final surface a subtle tint.¬† I enjoy working with new mediums and am always exploring new subjects, layering and surface finishes. ¬†With each work, I invite the viewer to first look at the simplicity of the image, then beyond, opening a door to the imagination.” – Jaime Ellsworth
