Out on a Limb

Out on a Limb

Piece description from the artist

This image uses abstracted images of the two vintage sock dolls, a rabbit-like creature and a duck, that have become iconic in my series of paintings on wood panels and cut paper. In this painting, they are taking their chances in the moonlight out in a country setting. This idea of being upbeat while being willing to take a risk is a challenge that presents itself in life. While playful, this image has a serious note. Visually expressing the line between fun and serious is what much of my work tends to accomplish. I find satisfaction in capturing the edge where life frequently takes us. I created this painting while working in my summer studio in the North East Kingdom of Vermont, so the landscape setting is based on what I was experiencing at the time.
