Why Oil Paint

My preference for oil paint over synthetic materials lies in its inherent quality, each layer of pigment is "alive" and interacts with those above and below. I can also work back into layers since they take time to dry and thus offer many possibilities suited to my process in which I reflect and revisit a composition many times. The material itself becomes an active influence in my choices along side my original inspiration and vision.
