22 X 30 Watercolor

On March 10, 2011 I finished this painting which I had been working on for about a week. It was completely one of those paintings painted from what I call the interior landscape. I didn’t have a plan,  it was one of those times when it seems the painting is directing me not the other way around. My husband said it felt Japanese and there was a mystery about it that was kind of eerie. I named it Ode To Japan. The next day sadly Japan went through their terrible tsunami so I renamed it to honor those harmed by it.

I don’t draw any conclusions from this other than art, like life is mysterious.
