“A Shrunken World” was painted during the COVID-19 pandemic.  At the time, I was thinking about how the edges of experience had faded and only the center remained in focus.  At first, I was trying to use dark paint to fade the edges of the piece and concentrate the center with color.  As I continued to work though it felt too clean and too bright and I ended up adding this area of pale sage fogginess over a part of it.  Because even though our worlds have shrunken, even the center can still feel somewhat unclear: What were we supposed to focus on now? What is our purpose?
