The first painting of 2011 has much to say and was painted quickly and intuitively. This one really came from inside. The black areas represent the closure or the fading out of the past and almost create a portal or doorway. What you see in the doorway is still unclear. Muted. Mysterious. Intriguing. There is light coming through, which tells me it's safe to venture beyond this door and keep moving ahead, discovering new things, touching lives, and casting aside fear and doubt.
This is not a black painting with color. It is color and light emerging through the dark.
May 2011 bring you all that you seek...and watch for open doors.
