After my last painting where I began the star formation bracing for my chassis', I felt so good about that one, even though it as by far the most intense painting experience I have created yet. My paintings are quite complex in their making even though the finished painting doesn't always show it off. Time is the best friend you have when viewing these paintings. It's not a flat plane with brushstrokes, there's so much more to it than that. I broke through the flat plane and found a world of dimension behind it. That previous painting is the first one to really take full advantage of the entirety of the chassis, from the front, to the interior, and to the back. That first painting had a multitude of colors which light up the interior, this time I went with a single color. RED. I had originally designated the painting with red as my base in the yarn. That didn't quite happen that way, I thought I had plenty of red yarn which I wanted to use, but I later learned that I didn't have near enough for full coverage. I decided in that moment to bring back an idea that came forth on a painting I made while in Pennsylvania. I hadn't made another painting since then with a single yarn thread running through the painting. I decided to bring it back and as you can see in these photos I'd say that was a damn good idea. Well, I guess that's enough talking for now.
Enjoy the photos! Remember if you click on them they will pop up larger. If you right click open link in new tab, or just view image, it'll come up with the large format I gave the original photo.
Big Thanks to Marc Ross for being such a wonderful help in letting me photograph my paintings in his studio. It's got such wonderful light for photographing my paintings.
