‘Aspens’, acrylic, 24″ x 24″ $1200
An artist uses every trick that he knows to pull you into the painting. Some of those tricks are conscious, like using simple colors in combinations, and texture and composition to entertain you, but more important are the subconscious manipulations, the things any artist does when he stops thinking about the mechanics of painting and loses himself in the thoughts. There are swirls and scribbles, textures and lines that lead your eye around and around inside the painting like a path wandering in the woods, created while he works in a half day dream, thinking thoughts, lost in the automatic process. These are thoughts made manifest. These are thoughts becoming things.
