Summer Painting No. 01
Agnes’s Hands While Sleeping, 2020, oil on linen on panel, 8 x 6 inches

Agnes’s Hands While Sleeping
is the first painting of the Summer Paintings Project. This week I am focusing on iPhone photos of my two daughters. The reference photo for this painting was taken after Agnes had fallen asleep only a few night before her sister was born. Agnes’s night lights are a string of Edison bulbs that produce an orange-case photo on an iphone. I love the strangness of this color space.
