"Couple in Deep" is in its final stages.
Subject Notes: These are the moments in time that are excruciatingly personal, but more than likely, we have all shared something similar. Our thoughts may be mostly complete, but constructed in a way that makes deciphering them difficult.
Practice Notes: Painting is a torturous discovery, like a painful hike to the apex; a realization of vision into technique. I wanted an illuminated look, slightly out-of-focus, and layered; reminiscent of neon lights or lights through rainy window. You cannot see the layers until you look closely, and that is exactly how I wanted it. It gets clearer the closer you get to the subjects, like looking through a drop of water.
I made several attempts at the technique I envisioned, but had to scrub it back down to the base line several times. I am so glad I did, because there it is. Glowing, layered, and somehow... focused.
