Sometimes We Forget

Matthew King's avatar Matthew King

Sometimes winter clings well into the spring and young blossoms are coaxed out by a temporary warm stretch. In this painting, hesitant layers of color are built up alongside bold strokes, creating an atmosphere in which things are not quite the way they should be. It is an all-too-familiar feeling when tender new growth becomes vulnerable to the elements; we are faced with only the possibilities of hopeful flourishing or overpowering disappointment.
