“Reflections” 



“Reflections” was completed a couple of years ago, before I had ever heard of the term ‘lyrical abstract’ painting. Yet, I would describe this small painting as exactly that. I was inspired to paint from a dream I had had and this was eventually the result.

I began the painting with some cadmium orange as the underpainting. I wanted to ensure that when I scraped away subsequent layers, a little dazzling contrast would shine through. I believe this, in part, is how the reflections were achieved along with the strategic use of white.

There were times when I worked on this piece at 3am. It possessed me occasionally. The painting is small but mighty and took many hours to complete. 

I believe it was worth it.
