Hanging with Norah, Natalie, and Louis, it’s what I needed after a crescendoing year with Art Basel as the finale! I’m enjoying a bowl of my first homemade chicken noodle soup. Not bad! A week off from painting and I’m missing it. Inspiration has been building, thoughts of the exciting new year bubble. As I rest in my leather chair, I notice it’s still crisp and new after a year, I can’t sit for long, with new blank canvases to butter with oil paint, I’m fresh and ready to get back into the studio!
Today is a new fresh day. I am ready to dive into my powdery pigments. They are like colorful candy to my eyes. I love to mix new colors on the canvas with my fingers and work the texture layer upon layer, like a cake. Each layer chisels the stress and frustrations of life away from my heart. I think about my family and friends and those who are in difficult times.
I will then finish the piece with energetic bounces of color that dance though the painting representing laughter and joy. With each painting I want to bring life and love to hurting hearts and struggling souls.
