Acrylic Paint on Canvas

20" x 24"

An acrylic painting full of dark gray and black colors coming together.


I typically don’t set out trying to convey any message…I just begin making marks and then reacting to the marks. Like a dance, or a call and response. When I finally finished, I realized how dark it was and how it was inexorably but quite unconsciously related to our nascent Covid world. While there is darkness and forbidding and a sense of fragility, there is a sense of optimism in the approaching horizon.
