This was the second important painting I did, also while at UC San Diego. I was deeply inspired by the song “The House of the Rising Sun” and feeling rather like an anonymous person at the time. Also, I’d purchased a sample set of Golden Acrylics which had 5 colors in it (as I recall). I made this painting to try the paints. I’ve been hooked on Golden ever since. This painting also has always hung in my home, currently in our office.
