February 2019 – nasty, brutish, and (thankfully) short

The first few weeks of the year always feel harder than the rest, like everything is slowly accelerating from a standstill, and reluctant to move in the cold.
On the bright side, the days are slowly getting longer again.
I spent January primarily wrapping up the work for my show in Almonte Ontario this April, but i did have a chance to work on a few other paintings.

Among them was a series of 4 darker ‘low key’ paintings.
These were inspired partially by a time of year where daylight can be pretty elusive, but also by a lot of the feelings that come along with it.
My focus was less on representing an existing location, and more on the process and the mood.
They are increasingly less literal, and try to ‘imply’ more than ‘depict’

(The 4th of these is still in progress, i’ll include it in next months digest:)

I also worked on ‘Hot Lap’ this month. It is set mid-snow storm from an intersection on the walk from my house to the studio. i do this walk a LOT. There’s a few ways to do it and it’s only a few minutes each direction. but it definitely feels a lot farther in the winter than the summer.
