This painting is a continuation of last night's work. I had to share the thoughts I am having as I create this one. Life is so precious. Living in the now has become more important to me. If I can paint a large colorful painting and one person receives joy and optimism from having it in their home, then, this gives my life purpose. So many times I sit and paint and hope that wherever the painting goes in the world it will radiate some kind of love and beauty. This is why I paint.
