Driving away, sunrise. A car accident. The car flipped over, the windows are gone. A dark stain on the road. Pulling on my chest, my throat closes up. Quickly moving clouds, bright sun burning a hole through the thick cloud layer. Staring at the back of a truck. Soft clouds. Trees. I drop off my painting in the space where I learned to cut glass and hang paintings. I peer into the lecture hall where I took my first art history class. I’ll be speaking in that hall next month. Drive home. Pass under a rain cloud. Cold air blasting. Stay awake. Stay awake. The light is yellow. More rain. Blinding sunlight. Clouds on clouds. Water reflecting bright off the road. This is “That Good Darkness.”
This is an original oil and acrylic painting, signed on the front and hand labeled on the back by the artist. It is painted on cotton canvas stretched on wood stretcher bars. The canvas is gallery wrapped, meaning that the sides are smooth and painted white. It is 1.5 inch thick, wired in the back and ready to hang.
