Imagine exploring a strange city without a map. You walk through the streets to a specific set destination but may take a wrong turn just to discover, unexpectedly, an even more compelling and interesting place than your destination. Often times, painting is like that.
The original is 36”x30” acrylic painting started from 5 pieces of wood and a canvas. I built and stretched the canvas over the wooden frame with the intention of painting a seascape. I repainted the entire surface 3 times, each time with a completely different image. The first two attempts did not get very far as I was uninspired by what I was seeing. My third attempt was inspired by a beautiful photo of a sunset that triggered my muse and got my juices flowing. But I wanted to do something more than to copy a photo – I wanted to create something I never seen before. Something of my imagination.
This painting is what my daughter calls “an augmented reality” - an image that starts as something real that then takes on a life of its own. This looser, more abstract/surreal painting process marks a new direction for me. I thoroughly enjoyed painting this just as I enjoy exploring strange places without a map.
