“The Good Red Road” 9 x12″ oil on mahogany panel
SOLD- Thanks, N.W.

I liked this painting when I started it some months ago, but it was set aside. The inspiration came from a hawk that was reappearing every day on our property to the point that I finally consulted my Medicine Cards to see if there was a message we might be ignoring. The Hawk card talked of getting your nose out of the daily grind and taking an overview of your walk on The Good Red Road of life here on Earth. We heeded the message and the hawk went on his way.

When I came back to the painting the figure was standing in such a way that it looked like something was being pulled. A red wagon popped into my head-I’ve been think a lot lately about how much Stuff we all have.

It’s been over a week since I last posted a painting, but that only means I have not been doing the small “daily” paintings, opting instead to do studies and stretch canvases for a couple large ones. I can see where this size thing will fluctuate- I’m getting a little tired of the small brushes and feel like getting my arm into action. I’m debating whether or not to share the process of creating a big painting with you. Having others looking over my shoulder has both pros and cons. We’ll see.

    I like this particular piece very much. The design and the colors create the feeling of memories. It is very special. I also feel the same way about your Harvesting Pumpkins.
