Archive for January, 2010
Just the other day I was asked to exhibit my paintings at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center! I feel very honored.
In keeping along the lines of the Wildflower Center’s mission, I went out this morning and photographed my native Texas Possum Haw tree. I planted it about 5 years ago, and this year it really did it’s thing; red berries galore! Everything else in my yard looks horrible after the freeze, but the Possum Haw dropped all it’s leaves but held onto it’s vibrant red berries. It looks beautiful. I haven’t quite figured out how to capture that yet, but I did so some Possum haw berry still lives.
I like January. Things slow down a bit and I can always find more time to paint.
I completed this painting this afternoon. Although I technically started working on it about 2 weeks ago, I feel like it has been in the making for quite some time.
It feels like it is reaching back to when I was 18 years old up through my present 46 years. It has something to do with the connectedness of all things. Visualizing the coming to be.
