The Thought Painting

This Though Painting was done in acrylic on canvas. I found the frame in the garbage as I was walking home from working at a gallery in Chelsea. I had a blank space on my bedroom wall, so rather than letting he frame go to waste, I took it home and recovered it. The painting developed organically over a year. I didn’t have much of a plan at first, so I would just draw things on it here and there. Gradually, the whole image started to come together. I don’t know if the finished product is the best example of my work, but it is one of my favorites. Not to say that there isn’t work that could be done. The pistons look terrible and the fireflies need to be better defined, but I kind of love this thing for its imperfections, so I’ve left it as it is.
