Last Ride to Dixon, 11x14
....is as close to one of those 'blink and you will miss it' towns as you can get. My friend Bob found this place by the highway with lots of machinery and broken down stuff. While he went off to do some of his terrific drawings I hung in one spot and painted.
Why would you paint that?....is what the family said and perhaps you also. All I can tell you is that I liked the shapes and colors more than anything else I saw. There is also some humor here but it may be my private joke.
I find myself searching for something artistically and don't know what it is, yet it seems that I'm getting closer. In this piece I don't find it in the subject matter but do see it in the way the paint moves from one plane to the other. There is a pattern of strokes and color that is attractive to me. One day soon I'll figure it out.
Thanks for looking. It's a process.....
