Remnants, Chevrons and Moon Phases

Last Friday I spent a few hours with my friend Val painting a small wall in her studio space. On my walk there I saw this beautiful abstract remnant on the side of an old building.

It was fun doing a quick collaborative painting!  What turned out was a wall full of orange, turquoise and bronze drippy chevrons.  Below is a small part of our lovely masterpiece!

I have had this large empty canvas (48×60 inches) sitting near my easel for about a year now. I have been somewhat intimidated by its vast size and yesterday i decided to let that insecurity go and just see what happens. A few years back I had this vivid dream where i was standing in a forest looking up at the sky and instead of there being just one moon, there were numerous moons in all her different lovely phases.  I have no idea what it will evolve into just yet, but i am happy that i have finally begun working on this surface, it feels liberating.
