The Many Definitions of Red in China, oil on canvas, 60 by 48 in.
Oil on board painted half way from real life then remainder from a photograph in studio.
This painting is about breaking up, and the heartache felt with departure from a relationship. It’s a painting of my x, but it’s also a self portrait in a way. It’s a figure crying in the rain, broken as to why two people can’t stay together- I chose pastel and bright colors, turquoise, pinks, peaches and yellows because despite the loss of what was, I can still remember the breathtaking beauty of the times spent together. Those colors usually only surface in those types of works.

I completed three watercolors for an art project proposal for a library, and this one illustrates the discovery of a good book, or as some people think, does the book find you?
