This painting is one of the first in a new series that I started on New Year's Eve, 2018. There is something about the combination of these strong brushstrokes and gold gouache paint lines that feels alive to me. They also have a totemic or emblematic quality to them—as if they stand for something seemingly simple yet remain completely mysterious.
