Love, like Water, Rushes In
What a joy blending buttery olive paint into canvas and it becomes a personality all its own.
I didn't know it would look like water while I was painting, I just felt the impulse for the greens & cream to be placed exactly where they are.
The title then hit me with a ton of bricks "Love, like Water" referencing one of my favorite books "Hinds Feet in High Places" in which the main character "Much-Afraid" comes to an enormous waterfall. Each water droplet is singing with joy as it unreservedly crashes onto the rocks, giving of itself completely- the ultimate expression of Love.
The BitterSweet Art Collection
Art creates a wonderful visual language to process and express emotions beyond words. The colors and images in my mind are often influenced by nature and emotion. In the BitterSweet Collection I use earthy, gritty organic mixed media to communicate the emotional BitterSweetness of life. Earthy turmeric, paprika and natural amber shellac are gritty but beautiful in their own right. The muted colors communicate sadness, while the large expressive marks communicate energy and even joy. The ways in which I move the paint are both intuitive and planned, a beautiful marriage of both control and spontaneity.
All prints are made on archival canvas and paper. Feel confident that you're getting a quality product.
