SNOW FUGUE   36" x 36”   January 6, 2016   

 

Snow fugue is a lyrical exercise in examining layers of white pocked with various lavender-blue strokes of paint, in varying intensities.

 

I was trying to capture the feeling of weightlessness that happens during a heavy snowfall, similar to being underwater, with the mind and the eye searching for reference points and equilibrium....the painter looking for a footing but finding none, enjoying the sense of loss and confusion....and feeling totally safe.
