This is a long narrow painting, which doesn’t fit the space of my web-portfolio, so I’m showing it in sections. I gave it the title ‘be like water’. It’s inspired by a trip to my beloved hometown river, The Little River in the great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee.

One day I was there, floating with family and friends in the river, dragonflies landing on my knee…and this is where that painting comes from. I guess it’s my happy place. My gorgeous aunt Betty requested that her ashes be released into this river, so some of my spirits live there. Its sacred water.
