New Acceptance | Regional Art Museum | RAM

My largest painting to date, Whisper, was accepted into Fort Smith’s Regional Art Museum (RAM) Annual Invitational Show. The theme is Metamorphosis.

At first glance, a painting of a cow doesn’t seem to have any parallels with the theme, does it?

It’s not the subject, but the medium. Whisper is 22 x 30″ and entirely painted with bone pigments. The bones were once part of a living, breathing animal. They underwent transformation (metamorphosis) in the fire to become black (char) and white (ash). I made a watercolor paint from those and then painted Whisper.
