AFTER THE RAIN

It has been a busy two weeks! I started on a horizontal landscape that just didn’t want to cooperate, so I thought I would start another piece and take a break from the first. AFTER THE RAIN is the result.

ABIQUIU LOWLANDS

Some things don’t go as planned, but take a turn…this time for the better. I began this painting, as I stated in my previous post, with Elephant Butte, NM in mind. It wasn’t quite developing that way, so I let

ANTIBODY…finished

ANTIBODY is the second smaller piece in the COVID series. It is the same size as MUTATION and plays quite well with it…a purposeful consideration. I discovered this canvas when I was “rearranging” my supply closet…I can’t say cleaning out…just

ISOLATION…finished

This piece is finally complete as part of the Covid series. I was having a difficult time placing the text…where, what font, what color…so it took a while. Keeping the letters smaller and more formal seemed to do the trick.
