I was looking to start a new series and was inspired by comic books. The concept was to work with wood panels to represent a single pane in a comic book page; my goal was to tell only a moment of the story, letting the viewer decide what happened before and after the image. I found these 3″ x 9″ canvasses and their shape helped me choose what kinds of objects to incorporate with the women subjects.
For the first painting, I chose to work with a woman looking through blinds. The challenge for me, as with the rest of the series, was to be able to tell enough of a story in such a small space. I’ve entitled this painting, “She Peek.” Thanks for looking.
