Painting: Gouache, Ballpoint Pen, Pencil on Paper.
This painting was many things before it became this. I kept adding and adding things in an attempt to resolve it. And then I had to take it right back, simplify it. I was left with a decorative, if uneventful, painting of a some leaves. Then I heard a program about chinoiserie and the idea clicked to embrace the decorative though hopefully there is more to it than just beauty, perhaps a suggestion of togetherness. Or a quiet solitude in proximity to others.
painting is on 12x16inches canson watercolour paper. The painting itself is 7x7 inches leaving a white paper 'frame'.
