This larger piece on paper evolved over a few days. The underlying painting was watercolor and pastel and was done about 8 years ago, and I find it interesting to take older works and bring them into my current painting practices. The bright hues of acrylics plus the rich blacks of India ink were fun to incorporate into the original design—which was not a bad painting, but something from my past. There’s an ache, in the depth of this piece, that I could see as it evolved. Even while working through sadness and losses, I am drawn to the bright colors. I think they comfort me and make me feel hopeful.
