As part of my practice I began creating these studies on paper as intermediary works between pencil drawings and the paintings. All of my work is painted completely free hand, but extremely tight. These studies give me an opportunity and a freedom to work out ideas quickly and loosely. They have begun to stand alone and become works on their own, but I love the fact they are simply byproducts created out of pure necessity.This departure from the delicate object a painting becomes is liberating for me in the studio. –Matt Mignanelli, 2013
