Ready to Hang

This fuzzy pretty moth is actually an invasive and destructive insect. One year Maine was plagued with these and many trees were denuded. This painting is part of my invasive series. It is done with quality oils on linen and may be hung without a frame.

There's a compulsion to interpret visual moments for this painter. The hope is that a special moment can somehow be preserved forever. I love working in oil paints. They are challenging and forgiving at the same time. Color, texture and light are the main components that I try to give center stage. And then sometimes I just paint a simple painting without much thought at all. It's all creative process.
