“After a Long, Dark Winter”

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 20″ x 16″

Field Notes:
After months of winter darkness soaking us all well and truly, we finally had a nice weekend of bright spring sun. And of coarse that would happen to be the one weekend I had booked on the calendar months ago to perform my live art nonstop at a weekend long music festival. This entire glorious weekend of sun would be spent indoors, having a great time and all, but still… indoors.


But then came Monday, it was all over, everyone was back to work, school, and all that and the sun was still with us for at least another morning by all appearances. Managed to sneak out and paint this one in the brightness of midday before the blue sky hazed over gray.

After a weekend of painting with nonstop live music, practically more as a form of dance than typical visual art, with nothing to reference but time, rhythm, and melody, it sure was refreshing to get back to earth for a spell. Thank you California, I love you.
