Mama's Got the Blues

This piece was inspired by a life lived under the same sky, year after year, season after season. Fifty - two vertical patches represent weeks in a year, and twenty-four horizontal patches represent hours in a day. The sunshine and shadow gradient color scheme symbolizes the light of morning giving way to the dark of night. The swirling painted motif signifies joy and sorrow flowing through all of our days - some bright and shiny, others dull and grey. Uneven trim and raw edges improvise a flawed patchwork of days, filling in areas to make a whole and building on each moment.
