Break is over and it’s back to the real world for me. This was the first assignment for my digital painting class. A gray scale still life. Boring, but I’m proud of how it turned out.

Untitled, oil on canvas wrapped panel, 17”x24”                   A figure sits in the lower left of the picture plane, alone, playing with a tiny wind up toy. He is small in the painting in an effort to invoke the forced humbleness we sometimes felt as kids.Kid Again, series in multiple mediums.                  In this series I explore moments when adults briefly re-experience their childhoods or discover traces of their kid selves that still live in them. I want the viewer to remember what it feels like to play, to get lost in an action or an object, to lose inhibitions, and to focus on the present.

Splash II, oil on canvas wrapped panel, 11”x14”                Both paintings in this diptych depict hands splashing in abstracted grey-blue bath water. Due to a lack of the rest of the figure the viewer can place him or herself in the moment and recall the freedom that comes with splashing wildly.Kid Again, series in multiple mediums.                   In this series I explore moments when adults briefly re-experience their childhoods or discover traces of their kid selves that still live in them.
