"Final paintings are done in my studio. The finished paintings often bear little resemblance to the starting photo or drawings. They evolve in the studio with layers of paint, applied with large brushes, palette knife, or bits of cardboard. I aim for a loose painterly style, sometimes verging on the abstract." - Bridget Flinn
