Flora, Fauna and Maryweather

I started this painting about eight years ago...yes 8! I was taking a painting class at PCC with Rebecca Morris, one of my favorite professors ever, and I did this one on my own. I dug it up out of my closet and decided to finish it two weeks ago.

Side note....come see my show at City of the World next month on First Friday! I will be in the main room.

Journey


Imagine a journey, having a beginning, middle and end. This one would be titled, "Where I was." There were so many stages to this piece I can't even begin to explain. It started as a pen drawing I did one First Friday. If you saw me hunched over a pad of paper doodling, this is what I was up to :) I can't stop having the urge to finish everything with gold paint....side effects of living in Las Vegas?
