A New Home
The small, gestural painting, FOR THE FUN OF IT, and the larger DRAW/PAINT/DRAW 6 are now installed in the lovely home of Kim and Mike Byrne in Chance Harbour near New Glasgow and from Mike's photos (below) I'd say they they belong there!
This morning, Dec. 12, I finished the painting partially shown in the previous
"wall" post: December Day.
The title of this one is: SMALL BEGINNINGS, a reference to how the smallest, most insignificant looking bits of growth (the green bits) confirm that life is irrepressible.
The media on this work is a combination of coffee and acrylic, well sealed with a spray fixative. There is something about the richness of instant coffee on a canvas that I love, and coffee is essential in this painting.
