Then to have a deeper depth of what is trying to be convey and incorporated by the use of the paint with the techniques being able to enforce the concepts. I would like to experiment with my own developments to have a source of vivid expression, to allow the painting to speak for itself and not have any narrative connotation towards it…
Name based on the Polish word "Skryty" (meaning secretive, secret, clandestine, uncommunicative, underhand, mysterious), the small town of Skrybane, hidden away in north-eastern Maine, is as elusive and isolated as its meaning describes.

With a population of 836, it has a fairly close-knit community that tends to be wary of and closed off to visitors (if they ever appear)
