Disturbances and Consequences
Originally uploaded by colormuse
This painting has been in process for a long time. It came into my hands this summer via the daughter of Ron Slayton, a Vermont WPA painter. Already collaged with red print wall paper in the lower section and with paper in the mid section, it presented a challenge which I was happy to work with. The whole canvas was aged, larger than I usually get to work with at 36x60, and has taken some time to consider. Last month I would add bits and pieces whenever I went to the studio, but with the new easel, it has had a couple of real workouts.
The term "Disturbances and Consequences" appeared in my mind the other day and seems to suit this painting, as well as life.
