Acrylic on Archival Gessobord with 3/4" Birch Sides, 12x12", Ready to hang!
I am an introvert. I need to re-energize after being with a lot of people. I figure I have been with people pretty much every day since December 13, a deep contrast to my usual isolated existence in the studio. When on our trip, I finally spent one whole day on my own, mostly in my hotel room, in utter silence. It was like going to the spa, for me. I finished the book "What It Is Like to Go To War" by Karl Marlantes. Through his own experience in Viet Nam, he shares the psychological and spiritual aspects of being a soldier, asked to kill for his country. This silent immersion allows me to re-group, imagine, and figure out ways to say things with color and movement, shape and value. Today, again, I am alone in the studio. It is like wrapping a warm blanket around myself. I have space to listen. Here we go! (Today I used iridescent copper paint as my last brushstrokes. When under direct light, this paint shines. It looks gold in this picture, but is more towards a copper tone. The four corners are a deep brown, showing the color underneath it.)
