Cover Up IV

This painting is part of my new series called Cover Up. Keeping parts of older paintings untouched and painting over portions that no longer appeal to me, I have created this new body of work. The mystery of what lies beneath the tarps is what interests me. In some ways they are like families who have secrets they do not share with themselves or others.

In these paintings large portions are covered up with tarps representing the secrets that families keep hidden. But every now and then bits and pieces come out. In the paintings the colorful abstract shapes and forms represent the secrets spilling out.
