The Elliott Museum in Stuart Florida opened its 6th Annual Juried show Thursday December 10.
Its a good place to submit work in a very active art community.
My painting Signal, Elegy 54 x 60 won honorable mention. I am pleased to report.
It is a large studio painting developed from an on-site painting 20 x 24 inches.
The on-site painting is essential to the studio painting. The experience of working that close to a signal and the finding of optical color is the essence of the painting.
The painting is intended to be interpreted on many levels. certainly as an abstract design and as what it is, of course, a RR signal. I saw it as a warning signal, however, beyond the dangers of an on coming train. What those dangers may be I'll leave to each viewer.
