We have been experiencing temperatures of -35° C and colder for what feels like far too long. This painting, Slow Burn, was hanging in the new owner's home, in a three season family room, when it suffered a catastrophe. Reaching out to brace himself from a fall, a boy's hand impacted and went through the paint film...and it shattered.
This is a paint film, so there is nothing supporting the paint from behind. So now begins the work of repairing and modifying the painting. Most of the pieces were saved, but with my studio being a little chilly, I will need to wait for warmer weather before it can be finished. A daunting but important project that will educate me more on the delicacy of my work, and how to maintain it.
