I used to like to lie in the grass as a child and look up at the world. To see the dragonflies flit above me in uninterrupted blue, ants in the grass beside me, and to be small amongst the giant walls of houses. A change in perspective.
This is an old house long ago demolished. It seemed to be the right one for this experiment with a new view and some looser brushstrokes.
A change in perspective inspired this painting and it was followed by a shift that will force a new one over more than just the work.
This one will be at Auburn Gallery in Muskoka at the end of September, along with the remaining paintings from the Echoes series in the upcoming book, Once Imagined.
These two from the “White House” and “Sparrow Beach Lodge” are in the book and will be available at the opening September 30th as well. I hope to see you there!
