A moment of recognition is a color, value and proportional study for a larger work. I am exploting the ideas of identity, time and space, much like most of my current body of work. It is painted over the top of another painting called Blue. For reasons of posterity, I will keep the original text for blue below as well as the original image in the slide show.  Blue was almost a finished piece, but I did not like it and tried to rework and force it to go to a different place." data-share-imageurl="">

I failed in that attempt, and painted over the piece with the one you see now.

Blue is quiet. There is a subtlety of movement in her hair, and though her color tones are saturated and chromatically intense, it brings a calming feel to the work.
