I have worked on this painting again and again....it was the second painting I made when I left Italy and arrived here in the states...it is me even though it doesn't really look like me. I think I haven't shared it because it had made me so sad when I painted this painting.
Art is funny like that for me I paint what I paint. I have no real control over what shows up on my canvas. I did not want to paint me or me in a sad painting for that matter....but there it was....me....my old home....boats out front seeming to say that it was time to go.
And there was one of the birds that I had watched in our yard telling me "Home is where you are, look Katy you are wearing it for goodness sakes, can't you see that!"
But I couldn't at the time, there were too many tears filling up my eyes.
I pulled out this painting today getting it ready for my art hanging next month there will be some sad paintings and happy paintings at this show, that is just the way it is.
