This is a study for a much larger piece. I have all these ideas in my head, and all these memories. They ride along nesting in my mind waiting to fly away as paintings. To fly out into the world as stories on canvas. Waiting to be found and heard and finally understood.
Many times the idea for the painting comes into my mind, but I cannot explain it clearly until after it is painted out. There are no words before the picture. I don't know why other than a kind of puzzling and figuring is going on as I work it out.
