Bedroom 36″ x 36″ Oil on Canvas, 2009
Last of the series. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’ll let in on a little secret. In each of these I’ve painted blood, partially concealed by furniture or shadow. The series isn’t meant to be taken literally, in the case of domestic violence or abuse, (although it could, and some have already interpreted them that way). I feel like they’re more about secrecy, and dark things we choose to keep to ourselves in our lives. I’m open to interpretation though…

Third in the series, this is our living room. I love lamp light.

Bathroom 36″ x 36″ Oil on Canvas, 2009
I’ll post these in the order they were completed. It’s funny, the things we’re drawn to paint, and the things we end up enjoying the most. In this case, I was excited to do the shower curtain, and though it’s satisfying, the tiles and little potted plants ended up yielding what seemed to be the center of interest in the painting.

There will be a lot of excellent stuff at this show, at really low, affordable prices, the show runs until the 2nd of May, so I highly recommend anyone in the HRM to swing by and get while the gettin’s good!
