Brewing Storm Brings Fresh New Work!
Yesterday, here in Northern California, a storm was coming in. I could smell it, feel it in the air and it felt good. There's something about rain that makes me just plain giddy. I'm no scientist but I've heard it has something to do with negative ions in the air. It works for me.
For some wacky reason I'm one of those people that gets shocked easily, I can't wear a watch, the battery just stops, I've blown out more kitchen appliances than I can count and wearing acrylic is simply out of the question; I become one of those lightening rod thingies in a glass globe and become, well, conductive. Its quite unpleasant. Electricity, I'm full of it. But when it rains, or its just about to, thats when I'm in my element, energetic and creative and in my own unbalanced way, balanced. So, I spent the better part of the day in my studio watching the storm come in and creating 4 new paintings. I was on a tear. Today the storm is in full force; its cold and dark with downed trees, and whistling winds...I love it.
