An earlier composition. The largest frame I had ordered from this great custom stretcher bar guy… Largest canvas at that point (and a size I still work with!), the first involved piece out of the Atelier. About 140 separate color mixes. Armature is a hyper-solid box within-a-box… spheres floating in front of a portal of unification (or words to that effect)…
This painting was much about neutrals and local color and the visual sensation I get when I look at complementary opposites, vividness and depth… And to imagine it all moving into itself, constantly, like a portal… A window in to another world… I love windows. I walk a lot and sometimes with the blue deep of evening and the warmth pouring yellow light laughter and love out to the street… There’s something about that….
Determination. Sometimes the desire to see a result or picture is so bright that it can outshine everything else in our experience. So it was with this one. I was very interested in how to make colors vivid and learning that colors are very much about contrast. So the game became “how do you make a vivid neutral?” so lots of color mixing later… c’est voila!
And then this little flow from the dance floor, sunrise:
Right now, This Tree is special.
Right now people are high
Right now people are messed up
Right now people are in pain
Right now people feel beautiful
Right now somewhere somebody got it right
This right now
People are connecting
We are one
One Hundred Percent
And accounted for.
It’s good to b here
In the light
As the light
