Over the period of time that I painted these birds, every time I closed my eyes I saw wings. After a while, I even began to feel the sensation of flying over our valley, of swooping down. From this painting, I learned to work from a very authentic place. I could feel the weightlessness, the support of the air, effortless soaring. No matter what is happening, there is this place.
I love looking at these birds, because they are that sensation.
Winter Birds, along with more of my new works, will be on display at La Cocina de Luz Restaurant in Telluride, Colorado beginning December 1, 2011 through the month. La Cocina is located at 123 East Colorado Avenue, Telluride.
