flower panel 1

I recently hung up this large piece, about 3.5 feet by 1.5 feet, which consists of painted small illustration board squares with drawings on mulberry paper glued to them. Then I glued them in a line, joined by string, to a painted black framed wooden board. Quite the complicated mixed-media thing in the end. I’d like to share one of the squares today. It’s only maybe 4 inches by 4 inches.

I originally intended to black out some of this one, to show it’s a distant memory that I can’t quite grasp. For some reason, the fields behind my house in the rural suburbs of Rochester, NY, in November and March on a dark day are intensely nostalgic for me. I imagine there being some cold wind in this picture. The forest in the background is rather large in real life, so it’s a little skewed – it would be closer in reality than it is in this painting. This is about 16×20″ or so, oil on canvas.
