In the light

Here’s a little watercolor self portrait of myself in the sunlight. I love white empty spaces in a piece. Even in dinky little portraits. In fact, white is my favorite color and I’ll come to blows with anybody that tries to say it isn’t a color. Bring it on.

It’s my favorite for it’s potential. It may be a little traditional of me but I think anybody who grew up facing a sheet of blank paper like it was a great mystery to be unlocked knows what I mean. That whiteness, that incredibly blank slate, is the feeling of standing at the edge of a precipice. It is so so much of what makes it all worth while…and sometimes looking at it feels like sunshine.
