Once the first coat is applied, the canvas is never touched again with brush. All the strokes are splattered or thrown, from brush or stick. Like intricate embroidery, each skein of paint weaves together an image. Rather than precise stitch, these skeins of paint are thrown from stick and brush, lending an impression rather than an exact image. A feeling of the image, the moment, caught in time, captured in a final spray of color.
I have been to DC and Virginia during a snow storm, what quiet beauty is portrayed there. Something a So. California resident finds amazing. Last weeks impending 'snowzilla' brought back those memories and thus was the impetus for this painting.
