"Victory goes to the tenacious" said a friend to me in an email as I was finishing this painting. Which was interesting because it was not an easy painting to bring to a conclusion. And I couldn't help but notice the giant "V" shape and such an interesting concurrence or parallelism. There are no parallels in the letter V, but many parallels to the concepts of victory and tenacity. So I stuck with it and didn't think it was a particularly great painting until I took it from the painting room to the photography room (they are parallel to each other) where it came to life for me and I felt victorious.
"Summer Tree" One of my geometric textured tree paintings. This painting has slightly different textures in the individual sections, 36x18 inches, acrylic on canvas.
The feelings surrounding the concepts of "coming alive" and "coming back to life" are big in my life. Many of us have periods of time where we feel as if we are not playing on all the piano keys. These are of course not the best of times, but when we are released from these spells, well it's simply glorious. One might almost say it was all worth it. Much love to you all.....
