I’ve been asked if it is hard to part with my paintings and the answer not simply yes or no. It’s a great feeling if someone really likes the art work and feels a connection to it. I know I’ve come across images that I would love to take home and see everyday and if one of my works stirs something in someone I feel privileged and thankful. Thinking back on a few favourite paintings that have found a home I wonder what makes them stand out. I think it has to do with the process and feeling like they painted themselves. A couple come to mind. These where therapeutic for me at the the time and felt rewarding when I saw the end result. I’ll freely admit it doesn’t happen all the time and I guess that what makes them more memorable.
There are similarities in all three paintings, a single tree, predominately bright yellows and reds and a little blue and green for contrast. All have the sun’s effects in the light play. Each have found a home and I know where they’ve landed and that’s a nice feeling.
