Destined for Glass

Vertical Triptych

This was the first series I ever created, many college-moons ago. Essentially, they are prototypes for a column of stained-glass windows behind the altar of a church. They could be hung left to right but I created it with a vertical format in mind–in the order below.

 Also, they were just removed from storage and shipped to me a couple of weeks ago, so you will likely notice surface damage.

Groans emanate from my studio when foreign particulate–dust, cat hair(!), and such–gets in my brush or on my canvas. Depending on how visually fresh or immediate the stroke is dictates the tone of the groan. The higher the impact of retrieval–a greater likelihood of ruining something wonderful–the lower the pitch.

This piece, however, is one of those devil-may-care  Quick Study Challenges, and it was painted with a clean but tattered paper towel to deliberately create a crumby-canvas texture. As Wendy in my previous post “Identity” commented, it’s liberating to try something new. I’ve actually been painting with paper towels for years, in particular circumstances but not very often.

No groans for the Ghost from me.
