Jason started his adventure into painting when his Mother passed away in 2002. He needed a way to heal and the act of painting helped deal with the loss of his mother. Creating art became a powerful emotional coping mechanism Jason relied on at that time. Now, painting is more about the process of making art. A process that is still introspective and healing, where Jason finds a sense of flow.
When making a painting Jason uses many layers and a range of different techniques. A painting might be complete after only two or three layers; other times, a painting can take over a hundred layers to complete. "My painting techniques allow for flexibility needed to shift my approach as a painting develops into a finished piece."
Here’s the list of my favorite mediums and techniques:
1.) Brushwork with acrylics
2.) Dripping various paint mixtures
4.) Spray Paint
5.) Alcohol Mix
6.) Paint Pens
7.) Pallet Knife
8.) Pen & Ink
"Every layer is the background until the final layer is applied and dry." -Jason Towne
