"Insomniala" - The Process

india ink, acrylic on claybord

Now for one of my favorite pieces...

The funny thing about this is I didn't even realize how mandalic it was until it was completely finished. Didn't even cross my mind. It was built upon a cold configuration of circles.

This was the last piece created for the show at Apache and the title was born out of the fact that during that last week before making the show, I would nap for 2 hour increments in between each 12 hour block.... utter torture. I've always been a night owl, but this piece has put me over the edge of the remaining romanticism I might have held about the creative process brightening as the moon comes out.

No more.

Give me sun.

Give me sleep.
