This deeply textured work contrasts reds and blues with a white centerline depicting the separate types of emotions and was inspired after having a challenging time with comparison both professionally and personally.
Technique is acrylic on canvas.
The Subliminal details were done in my van, next to Mirror Pond, close to downtown Bend. I painted the first treatment at Pioneer Park, on the other side of downtown Bend (a place where I meet creatives on most Tuesday mornings to go running.) I wanted to do another treatment and it was so cold outside, I painted in my van. Right after I painted, I headed to go listen to the Central Oregon Symphony, who are AMAZING. The final treatment, I also painted in the van and turned on the heater at a place I frequented and finished the work.
The red on the left, crosses out the emotions I don’t want to experience regularly and the blue (a favorite color of mine) highlights more of the emotions I choose to experience. The original work was painted with a Golden (brand) Coarse Pumice Gel and added weight to the piece. When you lift it, it actually feels heavy.
