This Spring, I let the garden go to weeds, sorry, I mean pioneer plants and planted a few new flowers here and there. As usual, the milkweed brought lots of bumble bees, honey bees and butterflies. Stay tuned for ‘In a small corner of the world, there is a garden, Summer 2016.’

The sun wanted to be very white, as well as the floor and the ceiling. I kept adding more and more gesso to get the intensity of light.  I also wanted to get a more static feel to the  piece by applying small particles of wax, but each time, I scraped off more and more of the ‘atmosphere’ to create a smoother appearance. This painting wanted the cool, uncomplicated feeling I started with in the early sketches. I couldn’t veer off from that path as much as I tried. The image remains very simple. ‘Sunrise’ is  apart of the bleedthrough (past) series; a series of rooms that have a long perspective with light or darkness at their farthest point. They are abandoned rooms of another time, crumbling away, but at the same time, being filled with a light that remembers. What might appear as an office area, is now empty and the only life is the sun.
