The painting titled “Trust,” my largest fine art painting to date, has been bought by the College of the Ozarks and is to be part of the Ralph Foster Museum permanent collection. For hours, admission and other information on the museum, visit their website:
This piece was created at college. I was feeling lonely, even thought I was surrounded by people. Everyone else seemed to have their own click and having fun, but I watched from a distance. I guess that’s how I felt when I painted these friends playing hackie sack in front of the cafeteria. They were having so much fun, but I had to leave the space in the foreground to represent the distance. The title refers to the general tendency of humanity to be able to be sad even while they are having fun on the outside. It is also an irony found in the clock tower which shows two different times on the two visible faces
