August 2019: But a moment’s sunlight

Third 12” x 12” canvas in the Conversing With The Dead Series. All are on the theme of death, and all are done on top of disparate heavily textured and-or collaged paintings completed by the late Holly Cratty.

She didn’t consider them successful and didn’t include them in her catalog. I undertook this project with her widower’s gracious permission and trust. They are not about her; rather, they are my communicating in reaction to her marks and gestures

With these three completed and two in progress, Scott Cratty has provided the open-hearted validation for me to continue this exploration.
