What is the title of his painting I ask myself.
I look at it and think–
What have I created here in this work?
Where was I when I started it and where did the process take me?
I ask these question to help me name the painting.
I try to name it by what I feel it’s about.
This painting I think says–
I am so excited and inspired by the complexities of the universe–
So much is going on invisible and unknown–
And the very fact that there is a tangible real existence that we all believe in and agree to,
the existence where we walk in the park, and shop for veggies, and complain about the government,
when underneath and all around us, there is so much more happening.
Even colour for example- something we love, something that we experience every day- is
an incredible miracle of a thing.
We see colour because of the way light acts on surfaces of objects
and how objects respond to the light-
causing the happy little electrons to begin scrambling and rearranging themselves
to absorb certain rays, rejecting others-
This is all happening when we move through the world.
This is all happening when we perceive the green of the leaves
the red car, the yellow rain hat.
Sometimes I am kind of paralyzed by awe and wonder of things and
I talk about it to friends and they want to know what’s my point?
Or what does this have to do with anything we have been talking about.
Or do you think that title is too long for the painting?
