This painting is a mash-up of mark-making, drip painting, including mountains and my neighbor’s house (out of context) with pools of water and the thick grit of the leaves. People tell me that the mountains are of China, or of Hawaii. However, they are of my own invention. There are waterfalls that I saw in Yosemite Park and perhaps this is where I took all the images in combination.
Blue Birds is currently on loan to the deCordova Museum Corporate Collection in Lincoln, MA – but can be recalled at any time.
