In an attempt to expolre the connections between two people who exchange roles and moments together as lovers, I have created 3 larger works.
Each depicts a moment in the relationship- kiss, sweetness and consolation. I expanded my use of watercolor onto raw canvas and oils. I used little pigment in areas and using solvent to let the colors bleed out like a wash into the untreated canvas. When at times this did not produce the desired result, I took the tube of oil straight to the canvas like you would a pencil or marker and layed down heavier strokes and outlines.
"Sweetness" depicts a man taking a woman's hand to his lips in comfort and appreciation.
"kiss" is just what it looks like, an expression of love.
"Consolation" only the so many extra arms of love can bear the burden of our suffering.
These works are my no means flawless as they were done with an emotive intention vs. a technical precision.
Of my work, these are some of the largest available.
From a series of 3, this piece is on stretched raw canvas using oils and pencil.
It measures 24"x48"
