The idea formed as I was sleeping. Does that ever happen to you? When you're sleeping, does something ever just pop in your head? Your latent consciousness does all the work for you--pulling strings and threads from a conversation--a picture--and the fresh smell of blooms that you pass by at the market, into a bouquet of ideas.
This painting is my last finished piece of 2018--a year of GROWTH. This painting represents ideas that bloom endlessly in the mind, are grounded by the common-sense colors of blue-green, and supported by the pure gold of the spiritual life.
As you view this painting, your eye alternates between the flat, mellow, greens of the eucalyptus leaves, and the shiny, twisting, tangled, paths of the manzanita branch. Giant, breathy, pink, and white, Peonies bust through the background, bursting with life and joie de vivre!
This painting was painted with acrylic on canvas, and is 30" x 24" and hangs 1.5" deep, from the wall. Wire is on the back and ready to hang in your home!
