Unmade Bed, oil on canvas mounted on board, 14 x 19 inches, 2005
There's a blank canvas on the easel - and the paper-doll chain has assumed a different pose.
While moving forward with a new painting, I've been looking back in time for inspiration to make another print.
I keep coming back to this Unmade Bed. The colors in the white mussed-up sheets fascinated me at the time I painted it. How do I convey that feeling in black and white? I'd also like to dig deeper into the idea of awareness by absence of the human form. I like how narrative that feels.
There's a lot of visual information here to fit into a 4 x 6 inch piece of linoleum. This print may turn out to be a study for yet a larger print - we'll see.
