This 14″ × 20″ acrylic painting done in May of 2001 is really the first of my ‘acrylic painting portfolio’. I ‘d allowed my business interests and work to consume all my available time and creativity. I’d connected with my partner Diane six years before and she kept after me to paint. I had some oils, but I love water base, fast drying paints from my Jamaica experiences. Finally Diane caught me in a weak moment and we visited an art supply store. A set of acrylic paints, brushes and different canvas sizes came out of that venture.
I’m sure these supplies sat in their bags for weeks until again I was struck with inspiration. There was Diane, sitting on the couch, there was the old painting “Number ONE” on the wall behind her. In about fifteen minutes this paint sketch was complete.
Diane was so thrilled with my interpretation of her, as well as the ease and speed I could move into the “ZONE”, that continual experimentation and painting became a (well) at least a weekly event.
She’s moved past this interpretation, so we’ve hung her in the walk-in closet for only ‘our eyes’.
