This painting, as yet untitled (42"x48") is another one that is bound for my Santa Fe show
. The reddish-orange panel has been finished for quite awhile, but it was only recently that I found the configuration with neutral dark and light panels that you see here. I especially like the small red areas towards the bottom of the main panel that sort of float on the surface.
I had some delightful studio visitors today, a woman named Peggy and her mother and aunt from the Twin Cities area, who purchased several older pieces and seemed to really enjoy seeing my work from various times in my career and asking great questions.
Peggy owns a painting of mine from 2002, that I did upon my return from my last trip to the Centre D'art I Natura
in Catalonia, Spain (and where I am heading again in September.) Like so much of my work that is purchased through galleries, I had no idea where this particular painting, Lost Path
, had ended up. Hearing from its owner was like a message from a long-lost friend or relative...there are certain paintings that remain important and close to my heart, and that is one of them. That Peggy would come forth just as I am finalizing details of my return trip to the area that inspired it is really a very neat alignment of events.
