ECOAA Juried Show - 2

The second of the two pieces that will be exhibited at the East Central Ontario Arts Association juried show. Sometimes an artist can become discouraged when 'trusting the process'. Then, suddenly, something happens and you get that feeling inside that says, "Yes!". I think this painting has to be one of those rare works that spoke to me the whole time I was developing it. It began as many layers of colour and texture; then after awhile, it began to take "shape". As I worked further into the work, forms began to be built, then altered, then destroyed, hence the title: Idea Deconstructed. Great fun to work in some gold leaf, but I made myself knock it back some - just needed a few hints of richnes.
