This is a new giclée print that I'm offering. The image is from a painting I made in 2000.
" Lighthouse" is an oil painting I created in the year 2000. At that time I was very concerned with learning to have faith in a higher power. How to have it and how to trust. Several of my paintings from that period were abstractions with a theme about being on a rocky sea but knowing that all is well. I have since learned that the way to do this is to focus more on the higher power and less on the rocky sea. My objectives in painting remain the same: create beauty that is compelling. To do this one must allow the higher power to operate through the artist. ~Sally
A bit of prose came to me while I was painting in silence with no music, no audiobook, no TV.
I figured I'd better write it down before someone else does
Color is a Language
Sometimes it’s clear and succinct; sometimes it’s thick and muddy
Sometimes it’s thin and wispy and floats through the air, sometimes it sets up like concrete
Sometimes it’s sacred, sometimes profane
Sometimes it’s pure and delicate like a toddler in a pinafore
Sometimes it’s a drag queen at 3am walking to their car.
Sometimes it’s the cold light of day; sometimes the warm fire of sunset.
Sometimes it’s earth, churning it’s refuse into rich, life-giving nutrients,
Sometimes it’s light through a prism revealing its glorious bands of rainbow.
