While I was working on this painting I was thinking about how the things I care about the most are the smallest things… things that cause complete chaos… and that give life purpose.
What does that have to do with what I painted?
I’m painting abstractly right now. I’m working out some issues of size and shape and proportion and texture and transparency and opacity… And also for me, painting abstractly takes a lot of courage and I’m feeling courageous right now! And while I paint I think about life, and the purpose of life. And this is my embracing of life.
Thank you for looking.
