This painting almost created itself!! Like many of Disney's opening scenes, that sprinkles fairy dust, and presto, there is the castle!!

I barely recall working on this...but then that is the case with all of my most powerful pieces. All I can say, is that I get into an altered mind set (no, I do not, nor ever have done drugs!?!)
There is a difference between someone creating "their thing" due to "inability," or creating an affect, due to "choice."
The difference is greater than night and day!!

Several years ago, I went to an opening that Ed Kienholz had at his Hope Gallery. At the large doorway to his studio were a dozen bronze arms, about 5 feet tall... looked like the arm of Michelangelo's David. Absolutely powerful! And in the hand, was placed a dead pigeon. When he was asked, about the bird, Ed remarked: "When you have a "dead bird" in your hand, you cannot place anything else there!"

Just like our lives! We need to quit carrying around "the past." Keeping with the spirit of things the following is also shared with you! Also, I never list another artist's web site, but I am making an exception!

"TO THY OWN SELF BE TRUE"...
should be the basis of painting from your soul
(which has always been my philosophy, more important than any sales, or any approval!)
...and to understand this, hope you will visit
Robert Walton's web site,
who shares a great deal from his "soul"!
