Painting Rain

It has been raining here for days. The ground is saturated, schools are closed, and still it rains. What better time to list a painting of water for sale. Please check out this small painting I have listed for sale on eBay. Link

This is a small abstract painting of water. Painted in the summer of 2018. It is a nonrealistic work characterized by the calm and still feeling evoked by water. It was painted using Old Holland oils on panel 6×6 inches.

I love painting water, but it’s been raining cats and dogs around here. I think I will paint something dry next…Send me comments of what you would like to see me paint.

My best,

Remember Reflect Reform In this work, I have been exploring phenomena of memory augmentation. I experimented with reflections and cinematic images by juxtaposing photographs, paint, wood, and mylar. The direction of the work includes painting intimate, reflective, observations of augmented memories.  I began by building a cabinet of curiosities as a way to form a tableau painting and experiment with different media. Inspired by the relief paintings by artist Sally Han, I built a model of a Victorian cabinet using tenets of Darwin's theory of evolution. I painted on a variety of surfaces including wood, photographs, and adding raw lumber to the pieces. In this process, I disassembled the cabinet to give autonomy to each piece. Although I diverted from the original idea of a final installation, there was an impulse to paint larger. Adding mylar was yet another way to accentuate reflection as a part of the critical dialogue with the work. The final result offers an opportunity to remember, reflect, and reform.
