December 2020. Acrylic and collage on canvas. 11 x 14 in.
From the three I started around the same time, last October. I had quite a different idea in mind at first, and played around with some colored pieces with really unsatisfying results. I ended up cutting them up and here they landed. This was much more the feeling I was going for originally, but not through the route I was expecting. The collage is deli paper painted with cadmium yellow medium acrylic, so it has a slight translucency which I liked.
I’m playing around with some similar ideas in the studio right now, and I have to say it’s not working out well. Lightning never strikes in the same place twice.
