Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year.
To watch the unfolding of a tale, the evolution of an idea, the fancy of a moment’s musing–can there be anything better. Looking at the stages of how the catalpa morphed into iteration after iteration of the work–fascinating to me.
Each new version is on its way to the end, but unaware of what new curiosity would take direction. Deep recessive color. Frenetic blinding white pastel–building layer upon layer. And then a snowstorm emerged and began to twist and pull. Shove and whip. Would would have thought that these exercises would lead me to a Spring blizzard. But that is what is brewing. Suggestion is seductive.
Somewhere between storm soaked leaves and pieces of butterfly regalia, stained glass began to appear and aged rubbings on a sidewalk’s por0us surface. Darkness and light. Despair and hope. Chaos and peace.
