Right Intention, 30"x30", acrylic

The rough surface of Right Intention was built up over two seasons, through fall into winter. The first pentimento was overwhelmingly autumnal; the vivid colors and patterns over rode the subltler qualities I was attempting to develop. This final piece, probably the fourth layer, was completed during the coldest stretch of winter that I can remember. Despite the physical cold that surrounded me in the studio, there is a paradoxical cool warmth in the final version. You can find more information here.
