My Motto for 2011




Bloom! Boom!

This is a painting that was hanging around in my studio for a long time, without ever getting finished. It had nice parts in it, but never felt quite right. And maybe it isn't finished now. The colors are a bit unusual for me. Maybe too gloomy. But somehow, just before Christmas i started playing with it and added the purple face and the word - BLOOM! And when i look at it today, it seems to be the message for me, the word that titles this New Year. Welcome, flowers of all shapes and colors - this garden will be beautiful!
