Here’s my second in what I think I’m going to call my “Segments” series. It certainly seems that today everyone is bombarded with information from all sides. Multiple images that have a common thread but appear to be unrelated. The above 36 x 36 inch painting is a snippet of an afternoon’s experience. I’ve attempted to maintain a realistic light and space of the various pictures but my approach is more of a “faux-realism,” to suggest objects painted representationally but not quite truly realistic. Not sure where I’m going with this but perhaps it says more about our time then the vintage images I was painting before.
