It has been a year of great movement. And as usual my work in the studio tends to reflect what I am feeling emotionally towards my small world and the greater world beyond it.
I have been working with the City Series for over 4 years now, especially the museum scenes, and I am still drawn to its theme of finding solace and refuge in a world gone mad.
But I have also been thinking of other peripheral themes, including seasons of change and life cycles.
I have no idea where any of this is going yet. And I tend to be a bit distracted when going through these thought patterns with my art. But the thinking never stops.
This was an image I discovered in the mountains on a morning’s drive near Little Washington in Virginia, right after we first moved. I’ve been thinking of these new images ever since. Finally “Autumn Burn” popped out on canvas.
