I was gathering some work and piling it into the car this morning while the kids were eating the now-famous spaghetti omelet. Lucy took a look at this painting and said, “That is one of my favorites mom, I like the ones with the stars.”
"I like them too" I said. "This one looks like the way I feel when I’m painting. The ideas are buzzing around my head and the desire to paint them is coming up my body into my hands and my brain." I hadn’t thought of it till I said it. But that about describes the feeling.
To see this painting, and other work like it, come to the opening for the show “Where We Live” in Kittery Thursday August 5, from 5 - 8.
