"Rebirth," original painting, 24" x 30"
The spirit of this painting is rebirth and renewal. It was created during the darkness of winter, in anticipation of spring and the greening of the hills that surround me.
Green is the color of life, renewal, nature and energy. It represents growth, nature, money, fertility and safety. The color green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye.
The "Gaia" paintings developed out of an accident of spilled paint on the floor. I noticed the beautiful patterns in the puddle, and didn't want the paint to go to waste. I pushed a canvas into the wet paint, and discovered a whole new world of amazing patterns and designs.
Since that epiphany, I have developed these paintings through the use of precise pull techniques and surfactants added to the paint. I continue to be amazed by the variety of art I can create this way, and each painting is completely unique and surprising.
The "Gaia" paintings represent a sampling of Gaia, the living Earth, manifest through paint on canvas. The free-flowing patterns resemble the natural patterns of plants, flowers, water, sky, rocks and gems.
Sustainability is an important part of my artistic practice, and this painting was created using repurposed leftover house paint that would otherwise go to waste.
