Painting is a way of visual story telling and dream telling. The neutral colors and the subtle sparkle of Eros 23 transport me to some of my softest summer night sleeps next to an open window under linen sheets with the scent of lilac ocean breeze, reminding me of both something earthbound as well as something celestial, connecting these realms we all dance between.
Every once in a while a painting will surprise me with the foundational patterns as well as the colors. I tend to lean toward blues and greens, but love when warmer tones emerge. The color and form of this painting reminds me of the sand dunes of Utah or the veins of a flower petal. The steps I find myself taking outside of my comfort zone always wind up somewhere beautiful.
