New American Girl
One of the first in this series of "Anomalies",
it is acrylic on canvas and began as the background
was developed. Gradually, a figure began to emerge
and the composition suggested a fairly realistic
figure in an anomalous background. This was my thought process as paintings suggested themselves. The first marks were usually random color until an idea formed. A few strokes of charcoal, and the figure emerged. Always in a surprising fashion.
