Going through grief sometimes makes joy possible later on. Sometimes grief and joy exist at the same time. This piece is an expression of the joy and growth made possible from going through the hard times.
This painting exudes such joy. It lifts the atmosphere of the entire room. The details, splashes and textures draw the viewer in with such playfulness... a playground for the eyes.

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.
