Bird, plane or syringe? Painting allows me to transform anything I’m feeling. This one Flying Outside Of The Lines, is poking fun at media’s insatiability for tragedy and fear. People, the thing we can always be sure of is that we will die. My plan is to live this amazing life learning and doing as much as possible before I can’t. I refuse to give my life over to fear. Now go wash those hands.
Vancouver Island is well suited for rain, but the storm on Jan. 31 was INTENSE! I am grateful that my home is on high ground, and that it’s roof and walls kept us dry and warm. This painting is a direct result of the storm experience.
