what makes you raise your arms up, face to the sky? what do you run after? what do you run toward? what makes your glee that you lift to the universe? what makes your eyes gaze up in gratitude? are you beseeching, imploring? are you running after the sun, beams of evasive light? are you running into the rain just as it starts to fall? are you trying to catch bubbles of incandescent film floating high above you? are you simply playing frisbee or beach volleyball?
so many reasons for this morsel of painting to be recognizable, a snapshot of a moment in time, when, together with someone else, you looked up, lifted your arms toward the sun, and ran full-tilt after something. maybe even a dream.
i love this painting, even not quite done. IMPORTANT: if it’s something you are interested in, please let me know so that i can save it from being painted over. sometimes artists don’t SEE their own work. (eye roll)
