New: “Fenceline”

Fences are funny things. Their purpose is to mark territory, to keep things out, or contain things that are within. When I come across old rural places, with remnants of old split rail, or barbed-wire fences, the sense is that they once kept grazing animals from wandering off. More so now, I suspect our fences in suburbia are more designed to let others know where your property ends, and theirs begins. In this piece, I began without consideration of the fence, but I put it in, and as the painting came together, it seemed to became the subject of the piece. Whether you respect it, and stay on your side of it, is subjective.  “Fenceline” 48 x 36 o/c
