End of June paintings

A few new small paintings for mid summer.

Wheelbarrow. 8″x10″, acrylic on canvas panel, 2011.

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.

    This is the first illustration I’ve seen that accurately captures the type of floaters that just appeared in my left eye.

    Sorry to hear that. Floaters are odd little things that our brains acclimate to. I ended up having laser surgery in both eyes that year for vitreous detachments. Fine now, but it was scary at the time.
