Miami Landscape II, detail...
A new experience for me, finishing a painting and immediately handing it over to someone to sell, perhaps never to see it again. Thinking really hard on how I feel about that....

It is lovely! I particularly like how the black space has depth - a darker than dark night beyond the glow of the lights. Plus, there is a clarity and saturation to the color that contrasts to the hazy halo of the lights - it actually feels damp and humid. Almost liquid. One certainly wants to float up into that dreamy light.

Did you intentionally put the profile of a figure in the center of the painting??? Of course, I see figures everywhere...hmmmm...empyrean?

thanks, Sarah.... the darks don't show up very well here, nor do the colors. Kevin put up daylight flourescents in the studio while I was gone, so hopefully the colors will be truer from now on. No, no figure, not consciously, anyway.

This is a lovely painting. I want to go to Chelsea and see it. It is loaded with more "stuff" than your figurative work. Vagina-complete with cervix and womb. A mother that is threatening to smother--the forces of light and dark...and you tried to be nice. Pip
