Description

We await the show.

I never painted theaters until I started doing my one-woman show—An Intimate Evening with Death, Herself—on stages all over the country.

Because until then I never really believed in that trope, that notion, that there's some kind of magic in the theater. I just didn't get it.

But then I started working up there, and make no mistake, it's real magic. If it works, and as ol Chief Joseph Lodgepole said, "sometimes the magic works, and sometimes it doesn't". Actors have what's called a Bag of Tricks for when the magic isn't working. Most people don't notice - at least consciously - the difference. Unconsciously, they may be well aware of the difference, because that's where the magic works, when it does.

I paint the world on the stage back drop, because that's closer to what's really going on around us than the notions of normal 3D reality that we all project.

It's 24" X 18", oil paint on a ready-made canvas. It will need a frame to be properly shown.

Shipping is $15 in the mainland USA.

Many thanks for your time and attention.
