This little painting, titled Talitha, is about yellow. Yellow can be tweaked to have many moods. Medieval painters used it to look like gold. Van Gogh made stars, interior light and sunlight with yellow. It can be sunny and cheerful, or with a touch of green, it becomes sour. And it can be tawdry. I like how rich and lush it can be and how it is visible at greater distances than other colors.
Talitha is a one-of-a-kind original, measures 9 x 7” and is mounted in a 14.5 x 11.75” acid-free mat. It is made of archival materials, mostly acrylic paint and collage elements that I make in my studio. For information on framing, please see "Framing Notes".
