All of these have been painted on the back of ripped-up cardboard boxes. I hadn’t painted in years and one day it hit me out of nowhere; I had suddenly recalled just how much I had loved painting.
I’ve always been a really creative person. As a child I was really into making art, crafts, anything. (I was quite the little writer too.) Later on I began performing in school chorus programs and then eventually theater. I have been consistently creating, but I had forgotten all about painting and drawing and using pastels and charcoals… I can’t even put into words the therapy I get from it all.
Anyway, I was broke and desperate to create so I ripped up some cardboard and dug out some really old, really poor quality paints and just went crazy… I was really doing a lot of experimenting, I still am.
Inspired by one amazing trip.
This one was actually painted on four 13″x13″ tiles while I was coping with the passing of my Nana. ♥
