Curator’s Comments:

Going Green is a wonderful painting- containing jeweled tones and alternating glossy surfaces in the rather ubiquitous hydrangea. The pale blue petals and purplish stems are surprising pops of color among the local green foliage. The dark background space also provides a strong graphic contrast, and unusually dramatic light and chiaroscuro.  The plants takes on a hyper-real quality, with sharply constructed details while emitting a luminous glow. (Please forgive me if I’ve duplicated any of my comments elsewhere.  I just came across this piece today, and have a recollection of admiring it at least once before, possibly several years ago.)  I’m happy to revisit the painting, and admire your deft handling of watercolor.  As before, I respect the saturated color you’re able to coax out of the media, and restraint in allowing alternating quiet spaces to highlight your subjects.
