This image was born while I was washing collard greens. I thought why not make an image of what I was looking at. I took a few photos and this is the first of a series of collard greens inspired paintings.
This piece is one that has many meanings for me. It is about family and symbolism. I initially posted this image to instagram. As you know, the application crops your image to a certain format. This is the full picture. The images are from Commerce.
I have this thing about many things; one of which is cows. I love the animals of the Point Reyes National Seashore. These guys were hanging out just when the drought was breaking in Northern California a few years back. I have made reference to these guys because this is one of two paintings.
I love the fact that I can just open my door for inspiration. One day last month I noticed that the light outside was extra special. I opened the door and took a few photos. I worked on clay coated paper that I bought a few years ago from New York Central Art Supply.. I am just now learning how to used its unique texture.
