Exactly that …
What would I do, really, without ISLANDS Magazine? Their photographs inspire me so … just this week received their new calendar and can see that many paintings will come of that as well as the monthly issues.
This new sketch was fun to do — to be playful and creative with colors and curves again, after the relative strictness of the Utopias. By the way, the Utopias are tongue-in-cheek: I believe a full forest, undisturbed, is a better Utopia for exploring and realizing in awareness, more than concrete and stone structures any day. I know many of us struggle for a better world of our own defining, and thankfully here, for the most part, unlike Libya right now, we do so with proposed legislation, political rallies and the like, without guns or violence. At least I hope so — I continue to hope so.
So, Kauai, maybe one day I’ll get there. Until then, I can paint to my heart’s delight!
