When The Blackbird Flew 2 – 40×30


Title: “When The Blackbird Flew 2”

Medium: oil on wood panel

Size: 40 x 30 inches

Last summer I made drawings of a table and chairs in our screened-in porch, a nod to some Richard Diebenkorn paintings of a single chair in an interior. Later that day in the studio, I decided to make a painting using one of those drawings as a reference. This painting was quiet and contemplative. I made another painting and another, all evocative of human presence, and each one a play of color and geometry and composition. In these paintings, through the careful arrangement of shapes and color, I envision creating space for conversations – hopefully the kind of exchanges that bring real profound understanding. Is this too much to want for my work? Maybe, but making art is in itself a hopeful act, and so it helps me feel optimistic.

This is an original oil painting, signed on the front and hand labeled on the back by the artist.

It has natural wood edges with a 2.5-inch profile, and comes wired and ready to hang.
