Swallow 12"x12"


12"x12" Acrylic, Paper & Graphite on Birch Board (Framed in a Hardwood Floater)

I painted this while re-learning composition.  I had not been paying attention to composition at all.  I was in a free fall of continuous thought without bringing much sense to the table.  I was creating depth but there was no structure.  Then, I put down this large red shape.  Like a mouth ready to take in anything within its path.  I realized that such a powerful shape in contrast to all of the small, vibrating shapes and quiet spaces, anchored the painting. It was a lesson in utilizing scale.  Sometimes when there are too many little things going on, it takes one HUGE thing to bring perspective to it all as a whole.
