As with yesterday’s painting, I also made today’s painting a day before the US election. Its colors are on the red end of the spectrum. I suspect that most of my paintings in the foreseeable future will be more toward the cooler blue end. Not for any political reasons, but rather to portray the emotional imbalance I feel.
I can’t comment much further I fear, without devolving into a rant about the awful prospects of the future of my country and the rest of the world. [Note – It was really difficult to cut myself short here. I am just so angry about being the world’s laughingstock… ]
I wonder if my paintings will change from here forward. I will try to embargo myself from the news and concentrate on what is important to me, even thought the outside world has suddenly become orders of magnitude more dangerous.
