I met Kris a couple months ago when she visited my studio to look at the Methodist Jesus Renewal Project painting. She asked me if I would be interesting in painting in her home (which oddly enough was an old elementary school library.) I said,”Yes.” and immediately had a vision of a whale coming out of a volcano— not a life changing lighting strike vision but more of an image that appeared in my mind and stuck.
I feel very thankful to have met another kind soul that fully supports my artistic vision without trying to edit it. She only told me she loved the color yellow and later told me she really liked the “Jubilant Skeleton” aka Bone Man.
As a final note, I was accompanied all week by two brown dogs. I do declare that these finely bred German Short-haired Pointers make mighty fine painting mates. One even stared at the wall while I painted.
I entitled this mural Visions of a Whale Volcano.
