Keep Looking Up
When life gets challenging, we tend to put our heads down and focus on the path we're on. Keep Looking Up is a reminder to look around and enjoy the scenery. Beautiful things will come out of 2020/21 - I believe that.
Keep Looking Up has become a favourite vantage point from which to paint and has been done in a couple different sizes. Of course each one is unique because the inks have such a life of their own, but also because each time I paint it, I am trying something new or focusing on a different aspect.
This is my largest version to date at 24x30" and has a Northern Ontario vibe with those Eastern White Pines on top. Keep Looking Up was painted in 2020 and is an alcohol ink original mounted on a birch panel. It is sealed with a varnish and UV protectant, and a glossy coat of resin for a luxurious finish. (Alcohol inks should never be placed in direct sunlight.)
