Medium + Method: Acrylic.
The Image: Light, and time, and memory. Like memory at times, the image is an impression of reality at a point in time, or in this case, over two points in time.
The Backstory: As I sat down today with my canvas, I noticed that the floral arrangement on the table (wax flowers) cast a beautiful shadow on the canvas. I decided to paint the shadow only to find that my hand and paintbrush obscured the shadow when I painted, so it became an exercise in speed, memory, and interpretation. The first canvas is below. The canvas above is the same as the first, with the addition of a second layer of shadow after moving the canvas about a quarter inch.
