"Mending", a new painting, 36"x48" original oil + ink on canvas. This image has been with me since last year. I liked the idea of mixing a picture of a waterfall in Scotland (Onich) with a simple sketch.
I'm continually intrigued by the idea of depth in a painting as well as the abstraction of "flatness". In this case, I was trying to give the sense of a real place of the waterfall with the superimposition of one of my sketches as the flatness.
My mister thinks this a dark painting, but it is not. It has to do with regeneration!
Mending by the waterfall,
sound rushes and drowns the cry of pain.
Swirling water washes me to sleep
and by its healing, I am reborn again.
