Death Dawn

by Dory Whynot

Watercolor on cold press paper, 9×12″.

A portrait of, well, death. Or maybe the threshold between life and whatever comes next. Also a technical experiment in making “wrong” decisions with intention, like playing with unconventional “straight from the tube” colors, flattened depth, and a complimentary palette (I have always gravitated towards yellow and purple, and still always think about my painting mentor telling me that it was visually “irritating”). What do we know about anything, really. We can try to make sense of it all with measurements and rules and laws of the universe, things that might cognitively help in the moment, but somewhere along the way the logic bumps into inevitable chaos. There’s some reassurance in accepting it.
