Waxing and Waning


This painting titled “Waxing and Waning” comes from my Surreal Landscape series and measures 6 x 4.5 feet. Like most of the paintings in this series it conveys a sense of transition and change. The day is either beginning or ending with the pale light on the horizon. The crescent moon is either waxing or waning, and the canna lily is in all states of budding, blooming, and fading. I call this series “surreal” because I employ odd juxtapositions between foreground and background so that the focal point is one of being suspended in space. Time and transition are a common theme in my work.
