close



15" x 22", watercolour, 1998

The position of the model was always intended to be right-of-centre, but I did a few sketches trying to figure out what the background should be, choosing to combine the last two (note: matrix motif is referred to as "stained glass") and rendering it with a rather reserved palette.


The title comes from the song "Comfort" by Michael Penn from his 1997 album Resigned.

And on line
The acrobat
Who has got his act down pat
Balance rules of etiquette
Until you hang another net
If I get too close for comfort...

I used charcoal to write the word on the painting (like I did with mad., figment, and learn).

This painting was part of Operation: Waterstorm.
