fly onto the canvas. Maybe it was because Daniel was such a good
model, and could hold a pose perfectly. Maybe it was because Daniel
had been my curator for a bunch of super shows by the time I
painted him, and so there was that happy connection. I don't know.
Daniel, who is outrageously funny, incredibly creative a super artist
and curator, decided to give me a serious face for this painting, and
I'm happy with how it turned out.
The title tonight is about power. I was talking to a friend on the phone,
and the power went out. I couldn't find the flashlights, my cell
needed to be charged. I found my iPad and that was my light.
A few minutes later the power came back on, and whew, I felt
so happy. A reminder that I do have the power. The power to be
creative, the power to be loving in the world, the power to paint
what I need to paint. And also about how grateful I am to have
power to plug my lights in and get at it.
Have a loving your power day.
