Slice was about twenty other paintings before it became what you see below. It’s based on a picture I grabbed with my iPhone at sunset while riding in a Kubota at warp speed through a friend’s winery. I ran that photo through a few models in RunwayML (an AI program I LOVE) and did a few color layers based on the results. Before I had a chance to finish, the studio was shut down for COVID-19, and I was at home making cakes instead of paintings.
When I returned about a month and a half later, I painted over nearly everything in white and started over from a more real place. I think it shows.
Slice was featured in the CO Mills Abstracts show, selected by 40 West, starting in September of 2020.
