This series of large – and small – scale paintings began on an overcast day in 2020, at the start of the pandemic lockdown. I started to paint many of my skies yellow, then gravitated to lots of red — which has an alarming quality, like a warning — and decided against blue. (Blue skies are comforting and I wasn’t feeling it!) As always, my subject is the infinity of nature, seen and unseen, but this work signals a distinct but subtle change, felt, like knees buckling or a slight tremor underfoot. Subtle, but permanent, like aging. A tipping point.
