The Vista I See Now Is Changing

30 x 40"
acrylic on canvas

This piece involves a style of painting that uses snow, but the canvas is close to vertical, as most traditional painters have a canvas rather than horizontal, which is how most of my snow pieces are made. While making a painting, I sometimes have a song about something Im feeling go through my head and that animates me. In this case, it was about choices and the song was "Accelerate" by REM:
Sinking fast, the weight chained to my feet
No time to argue with belief ...
Where is the ripcord, the trapdoor, the key?
Where is the cartoon escape-hatch for me?
No time to question the choices I make ...
I've got to follow another direction ... Accelerate
The vista I see now is changing
Uncertainty is suffocating ...
