"Fortnight" March 19,2020-present, a collection of 14" x 14" oil on panel. Dimension variable.
"Fortnight" is an ongoing project begun nineteen days into my Covid-19 quarantine. Each day I attempt to capture the quality and color of the sky as observed from my Bronx studio. A pragmatic work about data collection and weather patterns, it is also a subjective daily journal of my perception of color and the fleeting conditions of light and atmosphere.
