There is no great philosophical meaning or story behind this painting. I needed to paint, and I didn’t know what to paint, and my palette needed cleaning, and what was left was limited… so I decided to paint a luna moth. Then I realized I was bored with it and started to run off the rails into fantasy again.
So, this is just about pushing paint around, thinking about relaxing times camping in summer and the wonderful insects we marveled at as kids.
This is a small, oil on canvas called, “Namesake”
