in Cuba the mix of modern life, 1940's cars, and centuries old architecture is alluring to me and my paintbrush.
the underlying goal in this one was distinctive color, loosey goosey brushwork and a spark of crazy color (the cab and orange car in the distance). the more I paint the more I realize that brushwork is a way of transmitting a vibe to the viewer of the painting. It can signal repose, calmness, or action and vitality, or something in between.
in this painting (when I look at it anyway) I sorta feel the hustle and bustle of Havana, but at the same time, the centuries of its just 'being'.
like when you stand at the edge of the ocean. its as if in that one moment of looking at the waves lapping at the shore, that you can feel the eons that it's been happening.
my color changes happened a few months ago (and continue to morph). now the brushstrokes are evolving.
in painting as in life, the only constant is change. sit back and enjoy the ride!
