Faces + Figures > Watchers
I hadn't set out to create a Watchers series, but it was inspired by Now. I like the idea of creating groups of figures that seem to be focused on an unseen vision somewhere in the "beyond". So I played with that notion to create Eight, which added additional elements I like: The textured surface and a distinct division of the canvas into top and bottom segments. Nine, the third painting in this series, follows that pattern and also attempts to capture Now's sense of mystery around the figures. And that will be my jumping off point for whatever in this series comes next.
