At the Precipice
“At the precipice, we change.” ~ The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)
This painting reflects on a person on the edge who is reaching out into his vision without fear. I wanted to create the impression that the figure at the precipice could literally walk off into the spiraling tunnel of light.
The painting is acrylic and is painted on wood. Wood affords a smoother texture and I enjoy an occasional change of pace from canvas. It is also neat how the wood grain can sometimes come through the painting and in general I am inspired by painting on a more natural and unprocessed surface.
