Apple Band


Click To Bid

Cosy as a cocoon. Apple soothing slice. It looks like eider down to me. We all need a soft place to land. Time out amid chaos. In my painting life, concepts are swirling, new images are vying for their birth. The artist me is restless, uneasy, in transition. Eager to release all those impulses held back. They don't make sense, they are not "perfected", it may not be time. When this conversation comes up, I know they are ready to break out, to fight and struggle to fruition. When I hear, "Can I do it? Can I create the impact that echos the import of yet another change?" This is when it is time for me to go toward what I don't know. To hold these impulses writhing, yet in balance too. Let them out to find their spot. Go bigger, dare more, expand, experiment, test myself again. So you can see how appealing this little comfort is. Apples, cushioned in a lovely crust with fresh creamy custard, were painted happily. It counteracts the sea of swarming chaos. Ahh, but I am intimately familiar with chaos, know how to ride a storm. So this is also just a snack, whetting appetite. Fortified. Steady. Once more into the breach, this time one of my choosing.

Paris is bone chilling cold and damp.
