Last week, after many months of building up layers upon layers of paint, I sent this 48" x 72" painting home. It arrived first to a frame shop I found for the client in Idaho rolled safely for transport. There, they will stretch the canvas for Suzanne, who will be able to pick her painting up in a week. This image was created to relive her experience of her youth swimming in the pure, blue waters of Lake Tahoe. What a pleasure to hear how she connected to the experience of feeling liberation in the weightless place. I imagined the breaking light across her skin and helped her celebrated this moment.
