This is one of an ever expanding series of paintings called "Forgotten Dreams". I was inspired by cave paintings from all over the world. I used lots of texture to lend the work the look and feel of stone. I used charcoal and dry pigments to lend an air of authenticity to the work. I am amazed at the sophistication of our ancient ancestors and the beauty of their work that still survives.
Most of my work is available in limited reproductions on canvas, acrylic panel, or paper and can be increased in size without losing any of the color resolution. Feel free to contact me for more information.
I have already belabored you with how much I love to paint big, so I will not dwell on that aspect. I love this painting. It flowed through me as if I was some kind of medium. I use this palette a lot, so that was not so different, but the composition and application of color was spontaneous and I have rarely felt this free in the process of painting. There was little hesitation. My studio mates provided input which was taken and I am so happy with this piece that I think it will become the first of a series. Thank you for viewing my blog.
On Saturday, February 11 from 7pm-12am, I will be showing and selling my art The Wine Therapist. 1810 Skillman@Live Oak, Dallas, Texas. Please come and bring your friends. Share some wine and check out my art.
