The title I chose for this recent painting is called "Waiting to Be Born". It is a 22" × 30" watercolor painting I did a few days ago. I've been fascinated with flowing curved shapes and have done various colored pencil drawings and paintings of curves, just to see where it would lead me. I love the beauty of curved shapes. I like to do it when I'm feeling creative, but, don't really have a subject in mind. It gives me something to do, to keep those creative juices going. It is easy and fun to do. It makes a nice exercise to try how colors work against each other and how the lines flow.
As I was working on this painting, I had nothing in particular in mind, other than a study in curved shapes and colors. I began looking at it from different angles and noticed what looked like a fetus in the womb. The other colors and shapes that emerged, seemed to go with it, almost telling a story of the mystery of new life, with all it's fascinating wonderful possibilities of what this new life could be in all its complexities. So full of new life, so precious, full of hope, excited and waiting to say..."Hello, world, here I am!"
