A Slice of Light from Los Angeles goes to Switzerland
motel in Burbank is going to shine in Switzerland. The Olive Manor Motel since this painting was done has been totally remodeled but I know the light is the same. The motel series was an introspective journey to explore painting. I started the series when I was still working as a video game artist so I was free to paint whatever I liked since I was a true amateur. I explored a lot of interesting compositional variations, as Matisse would call "pictorial ideas" and the motel room was a fitting space to play with. One of my teachers told me there is a concept the French artists have that they call "face" which means if you put two dots and a line in the right place then you have a face.
