I am both content with the content and contained with this new painting on canvas completed 7.2.19. The acrylic background recalls both wood and stone. The oil paint spreads of colour refer to colour palettes and the possibilities that that entails. I like the idea that it feels like it stays alive in that there is more to come, that the paint may dry but remains incomplete compositionally, that the process is not finished. The line refers to drawing, almost drafting , to rules and the aledged containment referred to in the title. Note that each colour is different and mixed for that spot. I like the happy vibe too.
