Quick Glimpses

Sometimes I find my work evolving from those quick, half-seen glimpses that you never give a moments notice to. But I like that. Sometimes I think we see clearer those things that try to slip by unnoticed....

This particular painting was inspired by a quick, moving scan of a crowded group of people appearing in a movie...my eyes locked down on a image and haunted me until had recreated a version of what I had seen and resulting in the above painting.
I find I do this a lot....See or rather think I see something just out of vision which I must then create a clearer version.

But I think that's an important thing about art.....capturing that which defies being captured....
