“Reflection/Portal”, 2017, is an acrylic painting on 12X12 wood panel. It will be featured in an exhibit at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, opening April 6, 2018.
I worked with the theme of portals for several paintings and will likely continue to explore these theme. There is something mysterious and transcendent about the notion of portals: I think of portals to other worlds or other times and places or other dimensions of being. There is a moment of decision, standing on a threshold, even a doorway, as to whether we continue our direction by stepping across the threshold, and what happens next….What are portals you have encountered and wondered about? What might the portal in this painting lead you to?
