Strong colors that shout for attention continue to attract me. Deep psychological reasons, I suppose. But mixing up my daily painting practice with various styles helps, especially when I get frustrated with a muddy watercolor sketch of a garden and want to get relief by going wild with acrylic abstracts. Going at a small painting like this with wild color seems to satisfy that need for deep expression. Want to know what’s goofy? Sometimes when I am stooped over with grief or sadness I still gravitate toward the glowing hues. Maybe it’s a sign of mental health. Or of being unhinged.
