    I get the honor of sitting next to this painting in my office. I often find myself marveling at its beauty and movement.

    I love this painting and am fortunate enough to pass it multiple times a day on my walk from our bistro to my office. As you know, Brooks Pierce takes great pride in it’s collection. However, this piece in particular has been quite the topic of conversation recently. In addition to an abstract cityscape, I couldn’t help but see the pink figure towards the top in the middle as a sort of woman’s bust with bunny ears. I was certain this wasn’t your intention until a coworker noted that she saw an airplane. We noticed the series of numbers and googled it, assuming it be a type of place. To our surprise, we learned that they form the name of a type an antibody found in rabbits! Since, we have spotted a few more places that we think could be references to rabbits. As the artist, we would love to hear your input!

    Thank you for your great piece! It has sparked a lot of thought and discussion!

      Katy, I love that my painting has sparked so much conversation! My intention was not to incorporate any of those images, but I like that people see all of these things in it! The pink and red areas are Irish roses. They were painted first and then a city scene of Dublin, Ireland based on a photograph of mine is superimposed on top of it. When I layers images on top of one another, unexpected imagery comes through, I suppose. Thank you for telling me about this!
