I’m about to start a new commission and it has already been a powerful lesson of perspective and perception. This particular commission is for a collector and friend who is color blind. Though color blindness is more common amongst men, this particular collector and friend is female. I’ve sometimes wondered if that’s why more women are drawn to my colorful and expressive works, but I’ve been told there may be other factors involved in that equation (insert big laugh here). Nonetheless, my understanding of limited color visions has long factored into how I play with value contrasts in my compositions. In this case, my intent is to focus primarily on a desaturated color palette that highlights and reflects the intimate relationships of value contrasts, and I’ll be limiting my color spectrum to primarily blacks, whites, greys, and silvers. Though this creation will be for someone with limited color vision, my intent it to hide a treasure within the painting that only she can see. Through the application of interference colors that appear almost white at one angle, a specific color on the spectrum at another, and the complement of that color at yet another, I will be incorporating a subtle accent within the color spectrum that she has told me she can see (green/red). This will be almost invisible in most photos, buy very visible, I hope, for her. 

As I prepped this painting and was thinking about the story I would be sharing, my friend informed me that she is also battling cancer. Though I am tremendously saddened by her news, I am tremendously honored that she is entrusting me to tell her story through what I love most. I hope it will help her in her fight to come. I know that I haven’t really even begun and she has already opened my eyes to see the world in a new way today.

Pictured: Sometimes I like to do a little something something on the back of my pieces…a little treasure rarely seen by anyone other than the person that will give it a home.
