–Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This is a new painting, Nightheart, that is headed west to my friends at the Just Looking Gallery in San Luis Obispo. It’s about 11″ by 34″ in size and has a most cam and contemplative aura around it. This morning, when I came across the words above from Antoine de Saint-Exupery , the French author of The Little Prince and a real man of action as well, I immediately thought of this painting.
When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree. That line may say more about what I want for and see in my work than anything I have ever said myself. In fact, reading his words right now leaves me speechless. And calm, like that tree.
I will simply let that line above stand on its own alongside this painting.
