Pull of Memory
When the weather is contrary, the studio is a refuge. Such grey days with hardly a glimmer of a patch of blue sky and the glow of the sun...but here it appears in the abstract.
My Maine vacation also came in evidence in this new fresh painitng....the pull of the memory. Both paintings small, 12x12 and 11x14 on canvas and board. 2 panels prepared for the postponed Maine coast time, now finding their excitement in my studio. Sometimes I wonder why I am painting and then I lose myself in my paints and feel so much more satisfied when I come back to surface after the dive into the painting. It is a need.
My animal card drawn at ecstatic dance tonight was the deer. "Deer teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are trying to keep us from Sacred Mountain." Speaks to me...Be well gentle readers.
