Here's the underpainting of a new one I've started. I've written about paintings being containers of experience a lot lately. This honeybear embodies a number of those issues. The honey it contains is a distillation of sunlight, nectar, and the time and effort of bees. The light from my studio window and lamps reflects and filters through the bear, figuring another kind of distillation. Like the honeybear, the finished painting will represent a packaged distillation of time, energy, and sunlight. The dimensions are again 12"x12", denoting one square foot of realization.
