This work was husbanded along last week by one of our more traditional painting professors at UMass. If I had a quarter for every time he shook his head and said "I don't know what it is you're trying to do here, but"...(good advice to follow). It is however, one of my recent successes in the studio. The forms in this piece are not necessarily clouds rather they are a type of ambiguous mass placed in a rather ambiguous space; but it holds together spatially. And that's what excited me. The stitching, color, and composition are all working together to create an abstract space which is delightful and exciting to look at. If anyone has a suggestion for a title, I would be happy to hear it.
