Addison Paige #35 The Bits and the Leftovers
36" x 48" x 1 7/8" Acrylic and charcoal on canvas. 2014
The wind blowing bits and pieces of human emphera around while plants and contraptions continue to grow and move. I didn't like this painting when I first finished it and now it is one of my favorites. This happens frequently, I know a painting is finished but I don't like it, I feel I have failed in some way, but after a day or a month passes and I have put some distance between me and the time I created a painting I suddenly come to appreciate it and like it.
I have continued the painting over the edge of the gallery wrapped canvas so that this painting does not require framing.
