Shooting Star

We drove down the darkened road in the hope we would arrive home before long. It had been a long trip full of adventure and wonder. The shooting star moved across the sky in a flash and immediately triggered a flood of thoughts the first of which was to record the image as soon as I arrived back home and could get into the studio. And so I did.

The image resonates with me as a touchstone for the moment and as a reminder of all that has gone before and will that will follow. It is a pleasure to react with paint to a moment while the fire burns bright, to work from the gut. A gestural quality drawn from expressionism invigorates the work. You gotta love the speed.
