Since my Post this morning was a disaster, I thought I would try again. For a very long time, art has been my inspiration and my motivation to dig deeper, to reach further, and to grow beyond my boundaries. The joyful sketches I have shared this month represent only one chapter of a much longer book. Paintings from the nineties were serious, introspective, and more gut-wrenching to produce. Those phases culminated in several solo shows, the second titled A Flight to Freedom: An Art Tale about Rebirth. I thought this was my magnum opus…but my ideas have started to flow again and the future is unknown. A Flight to Freedom integrated 200 pages of journal writing and drawings, a story with seven movements, large and small-scale paintings and more. This show was huge for me. Now, back to the subject of this Post: these playful sketches inspired by other artists. I was searching for the magic in myself, the play, the joy, the spontaneity, something that I had lost. I didn’t have it in 2002 when I produced Flight but I think I have found it now. More to follow….
