Painted at The Gathering in Tacoma, WA in July 2017 – prints available for a short time. Original 24×36 acrylic on board.
I had a lot of fun with this one, although I was VERY glad I put down plastic under the canvas tarp… I started with collage and then started with the pink. The paint was really loose, so was running a bunch, but I loved what it was looking like, so I kept on! It’s one that I had a hard time determining if it were finished or not, although it reminds me of my trees. I kept hearing “going up” or similar things, so the stairs fit that theme. In looking at it now, I can see that every step is different – isn’t that so true of our lives? I know I get in trouble when I think that every step is supposed to be the same as the one before. Especially if that one was easier than the one I’m on. I’ve been on the 4th step – or one that feels that way – for a while now. A steep, uphill climb. It’s good, but I would love it if it were easier at times!
