Chromatics, oil on canvas

2,500.00

After over a decade of creating artwork in pastel, I became very fast with realizing my ideas. In fact, when I would talk to other artists who worked in oils, I used to marvel at and even quietly question the length of time that some of them described spending on their paintings. I didn't understand how an artist could spend over a YEAR working on a piece. That seemed totally glacial and unacceptable to me.

Well, now I get it.

Like an easily distracted Golden Retriever chasing a butterfly through a pasture, I have a short attention span. I wander off, pursue the latest bright, shiny thing that captures me, and sometimes lose my focus for bigger ideas. And when you combine that tendency with a cross country move from Pennsylvania to Tennessee, you suddenly end up with "Chromatics," a painting that required over a year for me to complete. But the good news is that I did get this piece done! Maybe I'm not such a distracted soul after all.

This panoramic subject caught my eye during a rainy late fall afternoon in midtown Manhattan. I like compositions like this because it's fun to take on the perspective of being right there, within the subject.
