Story Time (wishing to read a story to Isabelle).
oil on canvas. 38 x 52 inches. Spring 2012. Price: $2800
For a month I worked on this painting. I was doing a study of Jean - Honore Fragonard. Le Verrou
I was painting the layers and building up the spaces and forms. I was thinking about Howard Hodgkin and Frank Auerbach. It was Easter Sunday. Isabelle was at her Mother's house. I put chocolate Easter eggs and special gifts around the house. My little Easter Bunny come to collect the treats on Monday not Sunday.
I made a smoothy for breakfast. My mind was blowing into pigments. I could feel specific colours floating in my mind. While I was working in my studio everything started to flow. So I simply used the canvas I was working on (study of Jean - Honore Fragonard. Le Verrou)
as a foundation for Story Time.
