Mundane, Meet Dramatic
Oil on Wood
This morning over coffee, it occurred to me to let newspaper headlines inspire the day's painting. The truth is, this painting of delicious cookies in their cello container was begun yesterday afternoon as an antidote to an otherwise unproductive day. The headline, "Mundane, Meet Dramatic," a rave review of "Brand New Ancients" starring Kate Tempest caught my eye. Then I read, "Finding the majesty and mystery in ordinary lives is precisely the aim of “Brand New Ancients...” Precisely the aim of this artist as well. It's enough to make me want to hop on a plane to Brooklyn to see the show.
