Dilligence (2009)

My second painting for Congregation. This time it’s one of the virtues, dilligence. I have painted my mother, dilligently sewing – a nod to Vermeer.

Once again, it’s silver stencil and acrylic. I’m liking this style, it reminds me of Daguerreotype photography – all reflection and shimmering contrast distortion. Strangely my digital camera has added a moire pattern – rest assured, the original is unadorned with blue swirls.
