Lone Juni, Acrylic on Paper, 2015
This sums up my feelings at the time. Eight weeks of bed rest and I was lonely and exhausted. I love how I managed to make something bleak and yet so bright. It’s almost like buried somewhere in there is the hope that everything is going to turn out ok. Even if you’re the lone juniper growing on the hill, there is still the blue sky to admire.
As for a painting, I love it still. Very simple and honest execution. The Acrylic makes the colors bright and vibrant. Almost like real life. Maybe realer than real life. It almost has the feel of an old 90's desktop for Windows 3.1 or 95. Desolate, yet so beautiful.
I'm posting every painting I have ever done from 2014 to the present, the good, the bad, and the ugly. With an occasional photograph and sketch thrown in just to mix things up. Check back daily to see my progressio as an "artist"!
