(Beholding detail)
by Rachel Jones
Though I aim towards some sort of realism, my present objective leans more towards eliciting an emotional response. This doesn't mean I'm after a specific reaction, but raising a few questions or kicking off dialogue is the intent.
So in a time where people create a persona by sharing hand picked moments (mostly successes or spontaneous high jinks) for all the world to see, what part does an observer play? This and a series of thoughts that followed (some random, some conflicting)  were the catalyst for the painting Beholding Jubilation.

More to follow.
