This is a piece which continues my Random Scribbling Series or Asemic writing. I’m not the best with words so feel comfortable with this kind of mark making. Being a large piece one has to approach it as if it is small to view the details. Wild mark making releases energy from an unknown source, one has to not think and let go. Marks For Now 60×72 oil/was on canvas
It’s was about two months before now that a storm came through that everyone had to get out and look at the raging water. When it rains big here it is a community event. I remember once a little old lady (older than me) drove up to the dip which is depicted in this piece and stopped. She thought a bit and decided to go for it. It would have been fine as it wasn’t too terribly deep but she stopped right in the middle. She was scared of all the water surrounding her car and froze. I was there and a few other onlookers. We knew that she was going to be ok as the water was subsiding and her car wasn’t moving. We called 911 and let them know and waited for someone to rescue her. Someone from the pueblo came and pulled her out. She was a lucky little old lady….
Flooding In El Rancho Collage/oil on panel 12×12 Ladell
This piece is another in a series of (Boulders) It is the second one in the series. Made with oil paint and cold wax on a 2 in. panel.
These are different pieces, shapes in more neutral tones. The image evolves as I construct and deconstruct. These pieces are oil,wax,and ash on panel. The ash comes from my wood burning stove which I use all winter for heat. Enjoy the work.
