Pure Painting

There is no sense of good or bad. There is only activity, color and devotion.
It is an awe-inspiring thing to see forty six-year olds fill up forty blank papers with personal, meaningful creations...

I just finished conducting some holiday art workshops for children in Los Angeles. It is amazing to work alongside of little humans who create anything at a whim. They become so happy, and somtimes you can sense them nearly bursting with pride at what they have done.

My own daughter Lorelei is two, and paints joyously. At times, she also gets very serious as she mixes the puddles of color...

Here is an image of her beginning a new painting on this Chrismas Eve.
