acrylic on paper 21" x 29" original in private collection Art prints available
It was like in the movies, when time slows down. Everything was clear with crisp edges. I stared at the bear and the bear calmly made eye contact with me as I drove past. When I looked in the rear-view mirror, I swear the bear still seemed to be looking at me. I heard a voice from far away. "Brenda? Are you there? " I slowly lifted the phone to my ear and said, " No....I'm somewhere else " and hung up.
I really like how this painting turned out. This is the first in the "vending machine" series. I always thought vending machines were pretty but then I am always drawn to colorful lights. It is also the first painting in the perspective of driving by in a car. I'm painting more in this perspective because I like the idea of a moment physically flashing by.
The idea of a lonely isolated night scene appealed to me as a setting for a story. I first painted a rocky landscape in the background but it wasn't very interesting and too dark. I then turned it into a valley of sorts and added a city in the distance. I also like the plane in the night sky. I'm not sure what the bright yellow light behind the bear is. Perhaps a fire? I don't mind that some things don't make sense. I was going for a surreal dreamlike feeling. Although its not a dream.
