Original: Acrylic on Wood
This is my favorite from a series of about 10 very small paintings I made about nothing. The idea came from the book Siddhartha. Sitting by a stream listening to the conversation of the water, you can hear a million voices, yet there is only one stream. Very Zen. It is about bringing together opposites, in the way that it is painted, as well as the subject matter.
I was getting really into this technique of using a small brush, and slowly building and blending together colors and values through super small strokes. Compulsively going after that value of color that is the perfect in-between, or grey, which is technically impossible because you can always divide a half in half, on into infinity. So in the end there is a creature standing in a forest so still, next to a stream of water so fast. And they work together as one piece.
