Excavations

Excavations

 These painting are born of fierce need and burning passion. Riding a wave of sudden inspiration I gladly jumped down the "Rabbit Hole" to see where it would go... 

And found love along the way...

The premiere motive was to convey something large in a relatively small space ie.: an 11" x 14" canvas made to seem grand. my artistic friend from the Opera said clever suggestion of movement. Wonderful comment, since move has long been a preoccupation of mine. But, in this instance I was after something else... Also a kind of way to paint the feeling of something rather than the thing itself...

The techniques are all new, something which facilitated the paintings freshness. I felt a sort of fearless,rare in my life. As if a really couldn't do anything wrong. This immediately brightened my already effulgent palette. I ran across the waves edge reaping what fruit I might at inspiration height. The results are these paintings.
