Steve Gibson

Steve Gibson  Untitled (Agave)  2015  oil on linen  18" x 18"

I have been working on some smaller paintings recently. These substitute for drawing which for me is another thing entirely. Using wet on wet and tinting with subtle washes of indigo I am trying to set a mood or feeling with these. My goal is to relay a nocturnal kind of quietude and peaceful revery. The reason is personal and hopefully authentic. I do not usually engage in political or social events here but recently I have felt overwhelmed a bit. Hope this is not too maudlin but that is the way I feel right now.
