A Time of Quiet

2009 ended quietly and, so far, 2010 continues the trend for me. I don’t have many new works to show, as I’ve been working on several commissioned projects that will be finished soon. In the meantime, I am taking a step back to revisit the fundamentals of composition, value, painting and storytelling.

I feel like I have been saying the same things again and again, to the point where I’ve bored myself with repetition. So, to quote from the Paul Simon song Hurricane Eye:

When speech becomes a crime
Silence leads the spirit
Over the bridge of time…

… Peaceful as a hurricane eye.
