The Becoming
24" x 24" mixed media on paper mounted on wood cradle.
Over the past several months I have indeed been on an artistic journey away from home; away from the portraiture and figurative work I fiercely love. I got lost and scared. I got lonely. I knew all along I would need to come home.
When I look at this piece I can see the markings from my struggle shining through the fa├žade. This is the sixth and final piece from this experiment: The Never Ending Painting. Every painting along the way, whether I saw it as a success of a failure, was instrumental in creating the depth and meaning created in this final piece.
Here, in order, are the 6 paintings; each one painted on top of the previous one.
