Stop trying to understand it,
this falling in love with the scent
of cliff rose and heliotrope.
Just fall into the sweetness
and keep on falling.

– Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer

Yesterday I hung my first show of the year at La Cocina de Luz in Telluride Colorado. The aftermath is equal to a tornado having blown through my studio, and one very happy artist.

I took this year off from showing my work to learn. I wanted to explore different ways to think about creating, different ways to move the brush, and richer color palettes.

Albert Einstein said, “The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know.”

Do we ever really become a great painter? Or even just wake up and feel happy with our abilities one day? Maybe there are only moments, landmarks, and that has to be enough.

I ran into my beautiful poet friend yesterday, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer. She said she writes poetry every-single-day. And that if I painted every-single-day, I might not be so caught up in my failures or successes, or whether I love what I create, or hate it. She said that as soon as she writes a poem, it is gone. Something to strive for, for sure.

For this show, I’m exhibiting my largest pieces yet – three, 4ft x 4ft paintings, and some new and fun experiments with wine. And of course, some bicycles. The show is bright and colorful, and I’m really happy with it. If you’re in Telluride this month, I hope you’ll stop by and take a look.

In the meantime, I am off and painting again. New ideas have already popped into my head! Stay tuned!
