Midway 1 - 16"x20" framed
Size: 16x20 // framed
I painted these new works during uncertain times. The heart of my process has always been to uncover and highlight beauty and peace amidst chaos and confusion. It feels even more appropriate now. While painting these new pieces I dreamed of summers past, the places I've been, the places I want to go. The things I am missing now have been replaced with other kinds of beauty, closer to home. I hope that these paintings remind you of something or somewhere that you love.
Midway 1 - As a child, one of my favorite summertime activities was going to the state fair. I loved seeing the animals, the art exhibits, the pig races (yep), and most of all the Hypnotist show. Every year I watched as audience members went on stage to cluck like chickens and dance like fools. I had no idea if it was real or not. I think that was part of the allure. That I could watch something happening in front of me eyes, question its truth, and come away without an answer. Then we would walk the midway and eat Dippin Dots and discuss all the silly things we'd just seen people do on stage and wonder if we would ever have the courage to join the show.
Details: This is a framed mixed media painting on a 1.5" wood panel. The simple strip frame is made from beautiful unfinished pine. This piece is titled and signed on the back and will arrive wired and ready to hang.
PLEASE NOTE - THE PAINTING IS PICTURED HERE IN A DOUG FIR FRAME. THE ACTUAL FRAME WILL LOOK SIMILAR BUT BE MADE OF UNFINISHED PINE.
