When I started this piece, I still felt hesitant about creating the still life drawings with black backgrounds I envisioned in my head. I was not ready to commit.
Instead, I experimented with a subject that fills the frame. I did not hold back with the black background, but hedged my bets by filling the frame with so much of the subject.
By the end of El Naranjo I knew I was ready. I knew I needed to create what I wanted & that it would be fine. I had tried every alternative, but had not quenched that thirst.
There is an urgency about El Naranjo, almost like my hands knew that I needed to do this one in order to get to the next leg of this journey. I see so much movement and excitement when I look at this piece.
It reminds me of that last leg of my drive to a friend’s Central Florida home, passing miles and miles of orange groves, pushing the speed limit as far as you dare, excited to take on the unknown (which for me, as a city girl, were the weekends I spent in rural Central Florida).
