Reflection 3 (Red)
36" x 48" Acrylic on Canvas (On view at Institute Liberal in San Clemente, CA)
This is one of my first large-size pieces, with the most layers and the best story. The canvas was gifted to me by a dear friend who can no longer paint. I wanted to honor this fellow artist by painting their favorite subject: a sunset on the water, but mine was horrible! So offensive was this painting of mine (to me), that I turned the canvas around and refused to look at it for weeks! Still disappointed with what I had produced, I decided to apply my new love for palette knife application, and with a few more layers...viola! One of my most beloved pieces.
