acrylic on hardboard
This is a painting of the year we brought in the new year with fireworks. I completed this painting on this New Years night. I found this appropriate because it is a painting of a New Year from about five years ago. I hadn’t realized it until I finished. Maybe it was my subconscious in control of my actions. That year we were visiting an old friend from high school. Our visit ended with fireworks. This was great because, I hadn’t played with fireworks since I was a kid. We’ve always lived in the city limits so, our kids had never really played with fireworks, so it was really a treat for them. I thought about painting shoes on the little girl, I mean only a kid would wear flip flops with a sweater right?
