Portrait style canvas comprises tones of deep green-blue, turquoise, teal, cerulean, and green that start in the upper right corner and congregate toward the center of the painting. On the left side border are shades of burnt umber, sienna, black, and orange. Most of the piece has each color melting into the next, blurring the lines and melding into one. There are some more distinct separations and splatters of orange here and there, suggesting turmoil and friction.

Communication outward relies on the strokes of paint for the words often fail to stroke anyone’s interest. Soaking in politics and seeking to make sense of change and oh, by that way, there’s no such thing as global warming. It’s all just a farce, we’re fine here; wait, what’s that? Oh, don’t mind those raspberry preserves on my lapel. I think it’s just Chanel. ARANCIO VIBRANTE, six three four.

PAREIDOLIA — noun | par·​ei·​do·​lia\ ˌper-ˌī-ˈdō-lē-ə , -ˈdōl-yə\ | the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.

Found canvas — I use this term for a canvas that I’ve found at a local second-hand thrift shop or garage sale. Typically there is a painting already on it and is still in decent condition. Often times, I’m buying it for the frame that comes with it or the deal I’m getting. Waste not, want not. However, there is also the aspect of buying green in that sense. Reused, repurposed, cutting down on waste. I also buy second-hand or leftover paint at these locations for the same reason, but not craft paint. Never craft paint. The paint is typically used as gesso or base layering.
