“Blinded”, 21″ x 31″
This hunk of wood paneling had white paint on it to start. The bluish white glow reminded me of this slide of Regan Purdy’s ma, and decided it’d be perfect for the painting. I do want to include more animals, and objects into the photos I work with, so was happy to see how the owls would fit. In her left hand, there was a towel which was shaped perfectly to slip in an owl. The darkness behind just suits a creature of the night, and also, her daughter Regan’s sort of totem animal is an owl. Boom. Done.
