My proposal inspired from the painting Voyager by Kerry James Marshall is about transformation and being comfortable in the process of getting better as a painter, growing in a challenging teaching position and embracing this move. Grass continues to bring me comfort. Just to go outside and sit in it to transition from one part of the day to another.
My process to paint grass was to explore painting blades on a textured surface and then allow the brushstrokes to inspire emerging imagery. The first one I was thinking about Yahoo Kusama with her spikey sculptures and dots, dots, dots. The second triggered a memory of playing with minnows in a stream with my homestay family in Sweden and the third those long Aboriginal (I think) and folk art walking sticks. I liked painting on black very much.
