I have been working on a series of bowls both in ceramics and paintings. This painting, Full Bowl, (oil on canvas, 18"x24") is one of my first bowl paintings. I thought I would explore this topic in my blog as I go deeper into this work. The painting is structured somewhat like my tree paintings if you look at the painting sideways. Vertically, the bands of green and blue symbolize farmland, waterways and sky. The bowl contains, or is made of the sky. It is pretty common for me to make forms that represent more than one thing at the same time.
