Today is my birthday. This painting is an autobiography, as it has turned out, though I didn’t know it was going to be when I started it.
I had a couple of large canvases with paintings on them that I had done some years ago. As I do, I had lost interest in them and so as not to waste all that acreage, I decided to paint something new. Here is what emerged.
When asked recently, I said that all I want to do in life is take care of my house, exercise, do art, and write poems. In this painting, I am outside with my cat, sitting down to a table, where I’ll do some kind of art or writing, I guess. My house in the background is orderly and I went to the park earlier to run or walk.
OK, that’s the story!
