The first piece to emerge from my first series this year.....
My first commission. Stark Chicago Winter. Ethiopian music. Colors swirling, instruments swirling, people blissfully alive....a worldwide of unity, sounds of joy, happiness and smiles.
Made with love while in love in Bomarzo Italy, en plain air, in an olive grove. The soft, serene, surrounding colors fell into this painting like morning dew.
.....of duality is quintessential in my work. I was only made aware of this in 2004 while preparing for my first solo show in Chicago. Painting to Stravinsky' s Fire Bird, my own dance became clear. A Life-long battle on and off the canvas, a steadfast dedication to the ultimate finale of any painting or earthy affair-the victory of good over evil!
F.Scott Fitzgerald's 'A diamond as big as the Rizt'. Second painting with this title. First painting was 20 years ago. Same feeling in both pieces-something divine, a heavenly light.
"This was not Judgement day-only morning. Morning: excellent and fair."
William Styron, Sophie's Choice
The day that was before is another day gone.
However muddy t'was or gloom
this new dawn breaks with it plenty to bloom.....
words, words, words........
The unbearable lightness of being......the weightless of the moon.... the hopeful wait of the moon. Celestial interception. Divine intervention.
Universal law and Order. The laws of thermodynamics. Karma. Surrendering to the Tempest - Mercy.
A place of peace, a constant theme these years.....where love governs and the sunlight warms.
The last in 'The Tempest' series. I had a lot of fun preparing for this show and tested out a new technique - adhering the upstretched canvas directly to the wall or floor. To my delight I found the paint flowing more gracefully like this and have adopted this method ever since for my large scale pieces. Overture was completed just in time for the show and because this series felt more like a symphony than others I found this word befitting.
Inspired directly both in sentiment and by title by Dleacroix's...
Mine was painted in Paris shortly after the Charlie Hebdo attacks. The horrific and heroic events that followed had significant impact on me and on my work.
