On Thursday night, I returned from a business trip to Albuquerque where I ate like a king and enjoyed some beautiful weather. The rest of the week I lived in my studio and made a painting that terrified me. It is very unlike the kind of work I'm so comfortable making but I believe uncomfortable is where you learn, so there's that.
I drew inspiration from several small collage pieces, taking elements from them that I enjoyed like the torn paper look. The canvas piece is all paint though.
I'm obsessed with hands right now. I'm still interested in portraits but feel that the imagery of hands works better with my current concept. Portraits are passive while hands are active and denote action and agency.
