Oranges for Luck

"In 2022, I visited friends in Huntington Beach,CA. It was the first time I left Seattle since my stroke in 2018.Once an avid traveler, it is now very difficult for me, so it was kind of a big deal. I was enamored by the orange trees in the backyard in the California twilight. So, I took a lot of pictures. Back in Seattle, it seemed a good reflection of spring and summer to create this piece as we moved into fall. In this painting, I tried to capture some of the visual eccentricities I have since my stroke. I tried to capture the strange flattened yet moving appearance that trees have for me now. An almost brittleness that is at once flat and 3 dimensional.I also tried to communicate the strange attraction I now have to covered and shaded spaces (as they dim the amount of sensory activity).By creating an almost separate magical world beneath the leaves. Decoupaged medical text forms the edge of planter bed."
