I have duplicated and re-translated this painting from Woman Enraptured into Woman Enraptured Sitting. Originally a twenty part charcoal and acrylic painting on paper I gave her new life as I painted this figure in oils on a 4'x4' canvas. Creating a sister painting from a drawing allows the painting to grow and become alive in it's own way. Sitting quietly, the female figure is in a place of serene calm that is enraptured by the present moment of open natural space. Painted in a limited pallet of black, white, ultramarine blue, and terra rosa, this painting makes a statement of clarity, struggle, and love.
Making art for Daniel Kanow is of key importance in finding clarity and balance. He loves to paint and draw expressively with intent of raw emotion. The application of paint and use of color are tantamount for Daniel to represent the present moment. Daniel’s interest lies in the deep places of emotion that tell personal and universal narratives of fear, pain, love and beauty. His art acts as a conduit or bridge to fill emotional voids. Daniel’s process is dynamic and he invites the viewer to immerse themselves into their own stories so that the artwork may create a personal resonance. Daniel Kanow lives in Telluride, Colorado with his family. Art, family, and wilderness are his anchors for inspiration and motivation.
