This painting is certainly about loving life. I think maybe
that's what all of my art is about. It isn't that I don't know
the downside of life, I'm well aware that there is so
much to be sad about in this world. But I do feel that those
of us who are lucky enough to see the beauty around us,
to appreciate small things, to love what nature offers, and
to care about the people who make our lives magnificent --
need to share our bounty.
That doesn't mean we have our heads in the sand, or that
we don't take action against cruelty, wrong doing,
the ills of this world. It means as artists with an ability
to create and record the vitality of this planet and
its people -- we want to share what we see.
Today's painting is still in process. And the process has
taken a long time -- since last summer. But it is sooo
close and I want to share it now. Thank you for being
out there, and being my inspiration and support.
Have a telling your good stories day.
