From February Seventeenth, oil on canvas, 24 in. x 36 in., 2014

This painting truly underwent major changes throughout it's process, as you can see in the sequence photos below. There were times I didn't know what was going on, I would think I had it figured out then it would change, and I'd look at it wondering what in the world?! There were sections that were working but overall it wasn't. So I'd sacrifice the whole thing by painting over it; that happened several times. Then I'd see things in it that I didn't want, like cartoon characters, and I'd have to paint over them.

I really like the color palette, the black lines, and the collections of brush marks. I like the sense that I'm looking at something from above but also from inside. It is perhaps my current favorite of the new canvases and was worth all the effort and time. Right now we have it hanging in our house, though it is available (as are my other new canvases here and here.) Please email me with your inquiries!
