In early 2013, I took some time to paint on canvas. In the garage, I built a wooden support and stretched the canvas. My office was re-jiggered into a painting studio. I covered the floors with a tarp. Bought some lights to help illuminate the space and loading up a rolling cart with paints.
I took some photos to document the process, using some different photo filters. The black-and-white filter showed how little depth was happening. I was lost in the colors and patterns, but forgot about depth.
It shocked me to realize the painting was nearly two years old. After cleaning up all the painting supplies and de-cluttering my home office/studio, I started working on ink-based drawings. They're more easy to clean up.
I called the painting "Into the Silence" because the activity was much like meditating for me... a vibrant stillness.
Recognizing that this was two years old has stirred up a desire in me to keep making new things.
