White Rabbit

Acrylic Paint on Canvas

18 x 18 x 1.5"

$400


This intuitive painting began with a few random marks as I cleaned my palette on a blank canvas. I rotated the canvas and nurtured it along until a gray rabbit appeared. He ultimately became a white rabbit. I cannot explain it beyond that, which is what I love about the creative process!

 

Artist Statement:

These two intuitive paintings are unusual for me in that they are somewhat figurative instead of strictly abstract. Each one was unknowingly begun by making a few random marks as I cleaned my palette on blank canvases. These were set aside for several months, then pulled out and examined closely. I looked for anything - a shape, a color, a line - that might suggest the start of something new. I rotated them and nurtured them along until the shape of a gray rabbit appeared in one. He ultimately became a white rabbit. The energy of water and the neighbor's cat who has adopted the chairs on our patio for her afternoon naps came alive on the other. I cannot explain them beyond sharing their evolution, which is what I love about the creative process!
