OK…here’s a new painting. I haven’t used these colors in my “calmer” Consciousness style much. Red and black are usually associated with my Emotion Series. I like the way this painting conveys something intense going on beneath the surface.
I didn’t have a name for it when I started but then “Smoldering” just popped into my mind. Then I realized, that’s exactly how I’ve been feeling, as though my ambition, my emotions, my sexuality have all been smoldering right below the surface.
Below is a studio view so you can get an idea of the scale.
