Notes: This started out with a canvas I had painted al grey (the grey covered a small Enso I had painted years ago, and the grey was painted in 2016). I put the canvas on my easel and looked at it for days. I couldn’t see what could go there. It was a mystery. Then, one evening I suddenly saw these black brush strokes. I began to paint. Hours later I had something that I was almost happy with. The next day I added the green. When I stepped back, I saw that now it was finished.
‘Yeah, this is what I have been going through with the discovery of my biological mother’s family.” There where shadows here for most of my life. And then it all changed. Wonderful!
This painting is personal, but I hope it speaks to you too?
