Drawing inspiration from the low autumn sun. This time of year can bring a sense of melancholy. I also get excited for the massive hours of studio time ahead. I am leaning into the season and finding some magic for my work.
It comes with the change to fall. The sun lower in the sky. A certain unavoidable melancholy. This painting was done exactly one year ago…
I was happy to learn that this big painting sold through Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. It was inspired by a late season boat ride last fall… the approaching winter always breaks my heart a little. Much to love about the dark season, solitude and painting… still it always brings a little extra melancholy.
A dramatic and melancholic new painting.
