“[My] work flows from the style known as ‘alla prima’. This is the process of weaving strokes of wet oil paint into wet oil paint, often completing a work in a single session, at least before the paint has a chance to dry. My addiction flows from the way oil paint moves. The brush strokes interactions and subsequent celebration of the subjects features and forms by locking and layering each note.” – Lenefsky
