I did not expect this painting to ever be chosen, to be taken home. I couldn’t believe when I got the email telling me of the sale forÂ “Ariel Knew it Would Rain.”
She’s art that’s difficult to look at because, though she is silent, her face tells you everything. What use does one have for a few words when they are the picture worthÂ a thousand? I’m amazed and touched that she was purchased, and humbled too.
Sometimes I am so raw with my art. It is clear I’m not a happy camper. It’s clear the painting came from pain. When I do that I worry about saying exactly what the painting was about but recently I’ve taken more risks and just saying, hey, this is what I was thinking, this is what I felt before, during and after. It’s a risk I’ll continue to take because with art my voice is most authentic.

This has to be one of my most favourite of your paintings. It is really quite raw and real and honest. I feel that pain and yet I’m not cowed by it. Really nice work!
🙂 Thank you.
