This is a new piece titled "Watching Ed" Actually it is a combination of ideas that were rolling around for sometime and I combined them into this single title. What is this piece conveying? I think everyone can agree It's uncanny how mothers are always with you no matter where you are or how hold you are they will always watch over you. By combining the outdoors, a long road and a daydreaming cloudy summer day I think this piece works on a number of emotional levels and gives meaning to the feeling that moms will always be there, or somewhere keeping an eye on you.
Just a pure fun piece to do. Prints will be available soon in the farm series category.
The fondest memories most people have are not always about the “big event” but the normal everyday experiences that lead up to it. As an artist my intent is to visually capture a memory and convey it. A walk, a place, a person a workplace, a gift, a meal, all little things but they are part of every ones personal life mosaic.
Each piece I produce incorporates a unique story behind its creation and each story is connected to other stories waiting to be shared and painted. That is why a lot of my work involves a series of pieces that are connected. As they are produced they unfold to tell a bigger story.
These stories are the very essence of what I paint and they continue to drive me to want to paint art that connects emotionally.
To have an impact the piece should evoke a memory, an emotion something to be lived over every time you view the art. If my work can do this than I know it is a success and a meaningful piece.
