Hope and Aspiration

Acrylic on paper
14 x 11 in. / 36 x 28 cm
July 2022

There seem to be two brushed figures on a background field that is orange and warm and light. The white brushstrokes on the left side are quickly laid down in wide and fluid gestures, then scratched lightly to show bright red underneath. That is quick and bright Hope. The other figure is two layers of oscillating, weaving brushstrokes, a bright red over a thinner transparent pale earth brown. There is a first trial brushstroke, and then an overpainting, re-tracing, re-asserting brushstroke. That is Aspiration.
