The House


Pied-a-terre; mixed media; 25 x 25"
   Working in my studio I sometimes find I come to the edge of myself.  At some point, I am done exploring the known territories and must take a leap into something new and, as yet, unknown.  Initially it feels awkward and outlandish, but it always signifies growth.  And when I fully develop the idea I am able to look back on the process and neatly link it back to that first insight.  This is one of those insights which incorporates a new image into my vocabulary.  You may have already noticed houses in previous paintings but that is because I often upload things out of order.  This is where I found it while turning and ripping a large piece of paper in my hand.
