The materials used in creating these paintings is limited to those available for purchase at the prison commissary, primarily paper and colored pencils, and occasionally some pastel crayons. Over years of experimentation I learned to finesse these materials to achieve subtle painterly results, using mineral oil as an agent to dissolve and blend the pigments in the available media.  The color is then applied to the bristol board that has been treated with mineral oil, using fingertips and sometimes paper blending stumps as brushes, and colored pencils for the finer details.
