jungle bro...temporary title. this is a tiny canvas primed in a dark mossy red where the yellow and flesh tones and the touches of turquoise really pop. I must be careful not to fill everything in...I have gone back into my swimmer photo archives and resurrected this old image of my brother in his ray bans underwater. Yes, I know you can't tell what it is, so far I have really only worked on the river of light, but that is the effect of my recent work where the pull towards abstraction is much stronger. I will pull the figurative element in a bit just to increase the tension between description and expression. I like that place where I am torn between the two. It seems to describe my current self completely.
Give me a minute please to boil myself down to a single descriptive sentence...I am still working on this!
