8x10 oil and paper 24 carat gold leaf 1.5” gallery-wrapped canvas
Inspired by pink skies at sunset and sunrise on Amherst Island, this painting is meant to capture the feeling of magic as you witness the start and end of each day.
The gold leaf is meant to evoke the unpredictable magic of the horizon line, where the sky turns pink, where the sun appears and disappears. Where I imagine hope is waiting for us.
Named for the Bruce Springsteen song “The Queen of the Supermarket” this painting is about the feeling of knowing—and imagining loving—someone you’ve never actually met. The way you can glimpse someone and in moments imagine a life with them in it unfurling before you, even though you know it will never happen, that you may never even speak to them. It’s this burst of inexplicable affection that I’ve tried to capture here.
This painting will stand on its own on a table or shelf and is equipped with hanging hardware so it is ready to hang in your home.
I have signed my initials on the front of this painting and have penned my initials, the date, and the painting’s name to the reverse side of the canvas.
