18” x 24” Oil on Canvas 2019
When creating this piece, I tried to picture how softness would appear in paint. I wanted to create a generous opening for the viewer to sink into, like a comfy chair, or a good listener, or a good friend who accepts your soul. This listener would also offer something to you--water. Cool, refreshing, drinkable, sweet spring water, or gathered from a mountain or glacier, fresh, and elemental.
A ring around the center protects, offers a buffer to the outside world, the outside noise. Light falls softly on the center. This embryonic beginning will stay with you until the end.
