Since venues are closed, a bunch of places have started virtual art shows in lieu of shows that would have been happening now. Like many things adapting quickly to a virtual space they’re a little chaotic. These are two new works I made for Pacific Art League’s “Wish You Were Here: The Postcard Show“.
Planned well before shelter-in-place (with a surprisingly prescient theme) this had a strict size limit of 4″x6″. That included the frame size. I wanted to make something a little sturdier than art on paper, so I disassembled a couple of postcard-sized blank watercolor books to use the cardstock from the back cover. When I’m feeling stuck I usually end up doing art that either tries out different textures or different media.
I created Wave Daydream I and II, a few chewy-texture paintings about the ebb and flow of tides. Why not?
