Newest and biggest Valley of the Moon painting

…and I love it! It’s 3 feet x 4 feet and I really struggled with making the same imagery and marks on this scale, translating them from the 9×12, 12×12, and 20×20 originals. Marks needed to be bigger and my usual painting moves needed to be bolder. The impact of these vibrant colors and energetic drips, scratches, and squiggles really hits and I feel like the themes of preservation and celebration of nature and our Sonoma Coast dig deeper at this size. It’s like I’m shouting at this size and whispering at the smaller sizes… “Take care of the earth before all this amazing beauty disappears!”

Here are a few detail photos…

I am an artist, mom to 2 sassy, spunky, smart and kind girls, wife to an amazing and supportive man, a lifelong learner of anything that strikes my interest and passions, and San Francisco Bay Area native... I love music I can dance to, music I can think to, bold color, walking in nature, cooking and eating, yoga and deeeep breaths, reading really good books, getting dirty, crossword puzzles, games, mazes, the excitement of discovery, learning something new, paint on my hands and clothes, big jewelry, hats, and I especially love that, according to my daughters, "weird is the new awesome".
