exhale: day's end
I painted this artwork "Exhale: Day's End," during the corona virus "stay home" season. Without classes or events or community activities, I used that "free" time to paint daily for thirty days. Click here to see more photos and story on my thirty-days-of-painting self-challenge... "Exhale: Days' End" is part of a series of paintings in a visual metaphor of “Turning.” Turning is about direction, situation, momentum, and pacing. Imagery is inspired by a glowing sunset when picking blackberries near Johnson Creek Road, nearby my home in western Washington State. Painted in Spring 2020, the season of slow-down has quieted my own busy schedule. The quiet has revealed my soul condition, my path, and my pace. I'm receiving this season as a healthy "reset" of my tempo and choices of activities. Hopefully I'm numbering my days aright to gain a heart of wisdom. And so the theme of turning -- is about where I'll step and how quickly I step (or pause). It's a fitting metaphor for me in this season. 6 x 6 inches, oil on gallery-wrapped, edge-painted canvas on wood stretchers. Artwork is sold unframed and will ship after fully dry and varnished.
