Paintings That Will Ask You to Remember
I've been s-l-o-w-l-y plugging away, in between commissions drying, at a new series, titled: dear Merritt,
It's a body of small oil paintings, standing only 5” x 7” tall. Currently I'm working on five but envision 7-10 framed paintings in total.
Each little work is accompanied by a one page written narrative exorcising each painting’s memory. The oil paintings are delicately painted miniatures (i.e. the tinier the brush the better!) inspired by my memories from childhood in lieu of the birth of my first child, a daughter named Merritt. She's expected on February 4th, so it's a mad finish to the deadline. Although, I imagine, as all works of art, they start out one way and emerge as something else. Something better.
