Another NYC window, but this time an experiment. I only used 3 colors, and interpreted it how I wanted and I am so happy with it!
Not what I intended to paint this week, or how I wanted it to turn out; but I painted.
It’s been a year. I very loosely sketched this idea last year when we were clapping every evening for essential workers. It was a very rough sketch, just a smidge of an idea trying to capture some of the neighbors and strangers we saw and clapped alongside. I found the sketch a few weeks ago as I started working again more consistently. As we just passed the year mark of this pandemic, it felt appropriate to try to create it. It was comforting in a way, sketching things I remember, and processing as I worked. I’m glad I finished it.
Also, note the family cameo.
Definitely not as successful as the last one, but here is warm-up painting, NYC Window #2. One of my favorite things about windows is you often have no idea what you are seeing. I know those are books and some kind of artwork facing out, blinds and maybe curtains? Other shapes… 🤷♀️ Tiny, obscured glimpses into homes. ❤️
