Oodles and Gobs

I love the work of artist Jason Martin because he creates paintings you want to reach out and touch. Of course there is NO TOUCHING in art museums... but wouldn't you have a tough time resisting when they look like this? :

Martin's sculptural paintings are made using oil and acrylic gel; he sweeps industrial surfaces with gobs of medium-heavy pigment and never smooths them out. Such a simple technique with such grand results.

I am venturing to Provo, Utah this weekend for a retreat with my sisters. Many snow-covered photo opportunities await!
