Oil on Linen

Maple Shadow Frame

I can’t sum this little work up as easily as some. I was fascinated at the way her white dress just came alive with several brushstrokes and I created a very simple background for her. She seems to be behind a curtain, or who knows where.

There is a whole series of paintings with a thought of whatever happens happens and this is one of them. The joy of painting is evident for me on the surface of the linen that is slightly tacky from the undertint of sludge from my brush container that holds turpentine. The reason this is so nice is the tactile feel of the brush against the linen makes the most amazing brushwork and you get so much depth from the way the paint holds and gives on the canvas. That is technical talk for the subject matter is invented and my attention and excitement is in the way the paint looks on the canvas. In this way, these little works are more abstract than most, but still hold their own story and narrative for the viewer.
