Life" is one of the first paintings I ever did. My paintings are
almost always completely spontaneous. I have a very difficult
when I'm asked to paint something specific. Instead, I purchase
canvas (or, in this case, the canvas panel) and keep it around for
I love to look at blank canvas and think about all the things that
be created. Sometimes I rub my hands over the smooth surface and
pretty soon something just comes to me and I paint. Most of the
it's the color that comes first and I'm never sure exactly what will
I love rubbing the paint into the canvas with my hands and fingers and
I almost always use this technique to start a painting.
Life" started that way.
Trees can be so symbolic of life. My education has been in psychology and one of the tools therapists use is to have the client draw a tree. The more full and detailed the tree is, the more detailed and complex the life of the artist is. "Wonderful Life" came to me with a memory of myself, growing up in the central valley of California. I can almost smell the fresh morning air mixed with the aroma of the ripening grapes on the vines and the moist soil. I can feel the warm sun on my face when I look at "Wonderful Life".
