Solstice. Acrylic on canvas panel 10″x8″, 2011.
Alhambra. Acrylic on canvas panel, 8″x10″, 2011.
My Vitreous, pencil drawing 2011. A sketch based on a posterior vitreous detachment in my right eye. That eye also has a 20 year old cataract. The floater is called a ‘Weiss Ring’ and is quite amazing to look through. It’s like a mesh veil with a dark brown circular area that has radiating spokes, partially obstructing vision in that eye. I’m working on a new painting that is based on this experience, while listening to John Tavener’s ‘The Protecting Veil’, with YoYo Ma on cello.
