As I look at this collection thus far, I see that the paintings are less about the bird and more about the shadows.
It is the 6th painting I've made while on my knees - like I'm begging the art to come - begging for it to reveal itself.
Once again, as with the collages I obsessively made in the past, the results of my labor have little meaning to me and the process of creating says it all.
During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
