Piece description from the artist

Transition is an alcohol ink painting done on Arches oil paper. This isn’t a typical combination (ink and oil paper) but there are some really interesting outcomes and I enjoy this combination. I used a pallet knife on this one to move the color around on the paper. I had to work fast because the ink soaks into the paper quickly and dries so fast! I make quick movements and try to keep the art simple and at the same time, communicate what I’m feeling. It has a sumi art feel to it…which I absolutely love.

The instant I started this one I started feeling something about our society in America. The fabric of it is being torn apart. There is a transition happening. I believe this is due, in large part, by social media. It’s also due to the Coronavirus lockdowns and self-quarantines (or lack thereof). So many people refuse to wear masks. It seems that nobody cares about the person next to them. They only care that their personal freedoms are at stake. I don’t understand this thinking. We have to wear seat belts in the car to keep us safer. How is wearing a mask any different? But people don’t complain about having to wear a seat belt. It’s baffling to me. Such a small act of kindness towards the person near you. We are being pulled down, pushed apart, melting down, and everything that once made this country great is going away. It makes me incredibly sad. This piece represents what is happening in America at this moment. Thanks for reading and thanks for looking at my art. I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know.
