Invisible: frosted past



This painting shows my desire to innovate through imagery and to communicate through color. I removed most of the original color from my reference leaving a shell of the figure overlaying the floral pattern. I love wall patterns in Venice and I always take lots of pictures of art objects and architecture once I’m there. The original pattern hue was red-white, but I wanted to create a painting reminiscent of frost we often see on windows during winter. I think this baby blue communicates feelings of subtle melancholy. This figurative painting is about feeling invisible. Therefore we neither see the model’s face, nor her body fully as she melts into the frosted past.

Invisible: frosted past, oil on panel with some aluminum leaf, detail, 11×14

Before I begin painting, I work on my initial idea by completing several colored pencil drawings that you see below. I often take pictures of models that I keep on my computer for visual reference. This drawing process helps me finalize my composition, pattern design, and color harmony. Up close you can notice some silver leaf catching light in her hair piece and grass blade. This shimmery color changes depending on your point of view. I use the aluminum leaf instead of the silver leaf because it shows no signs of tarnishing and looks like silver.

The oil painting ships from my studio in Naples, Florida. if you have a question, drop me a line at
