Category: egg tempera
This egg tempera nude of two women sharing a deeply personal conversation on a beach in Maine glows with a light that seems to come from a beloved memory. The colors are lushly pretty and the young women’s faces and bodies are suffused with a tender innocence.
“August 12” will remain in the collection of the artist’s wife, Jen. A reproduction is available in our print shop.
This painting was inspired by the rooftop gardens at my gallery in Rockland. A beautiful space, the Muir Gardens. But really that was only a launch of an idea. These sculptures are only ‘real’ within this painting. They all are parts in a story. Players on this stage, if you will, acting out a cycle of a life.
