"The City" - July 2009
11" x 14" Gallery Wrapped Canvas
While working on this painting - just trying things out really - it started to feel like a dreamlike clouded vision of walking through perhaps New York City - people passing by, buildings all around and in the distance, not really clearly seeing any individual thing...
"Ashes" - 2009
24" x 30" Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Having painted a bunch of sunflowers already, I wanted to do something a bit different with this one. So I brought the painting outside, covered it with some brown flicks of paint, and it all just suddenly reminded me of something falling slowly from the sky. And that's when it hit me...Ashes.
The more I studied the painting and thought about it, I just had to give it to my parents for Christmas. Although, I no longer recall if I gave it to them Christmas 2009...or 2010. That's gonna bug me now.
