2009 - Acrylic & Acrylic Ink on Board - 7 x 15 inches
This one wasn't painted so much as it was gouged with a small paring knife (this is how the white that you see was achieved). We had to move out of our house just over a year ago while it was lifted from the ground so that a new basement could be produced (it's a long story). We moved into a basement suite right around the corner and lived in pretty tight quarters for a couple of months. I brought my painting stuff with me so that I could keep producing paintings for the upcoming show, but maybe by the time I got to this one I was a little frustrated. I don't remember gouging angrily... I just remember picking up the knife rather than the paint brush. Who can explain these things?
