Presence, 2024
30 x 40 x 2 in

Presence is inspired by a view over the Pearl River by Old Brandon Road during one of Jackson's beautiful sunsets. I approached this piece with a thick burnt sienna underpainting with a series of thin glazes stacked on top of each other. The oil painting is sealed with a matte varnish.
