Twenties – Price available upon request

My twenties, as most tend to be, were fraught with changes and challenges that inspired growth.  As I neared thirty, I started reflecting on the closing decade and wanted a way to process it representationally. This inspired a sketch that began the journey of completing Twenties.  It took me a few different tries to find the technique I wanted to complete the painting.  Inspiration came from the methods of Helen Frankenthaler—her dreamy, watery method of painting dovetails perfectly with the subject matter of Twenties—a painting full of memory.  I used a soak-stain method on unprimed canvas with India Ink and oil pastel. 48″ x 36″
