In this acrylic on canvas paper, I loved the cone of light (water?) in the center of the painting. There is almost a religious feel with the power poles and the indifference of the burly men in their reflective vests. There is a round harmony to this painting that makes it one of my favorites.
WHEN OUR SHADOWS WERE CLOSE
The photo was taken at Oak Island. The child was in her own world and originally I was going to crop the women's legs to focus on the child but the more I immersed myself into the painting the more I knew those ladies had to stay. I think the shadows tell a story about youth and self-discovery, self-involvement, and living in your own world. I have sold this painting and when I did, it broke my heart. I'll probably do it again.
