I am obsessed with the sky. I crane my neck up often. Everywhere.
How can you not stare at the ever-changing sky? This magical, unpredictable, mysterious, expansive essence over your head, over the world?
"Sicilia" is a painting made while dreaming of the psychedelic, mind-blowing sky I witnessed every day in late September over the island of Marettimo in Sicily. I was on the eastern side of the island and would awaken early, just as the birdsong began, and watch the sun rise over the Mediterranean. I adore the dawn, that moment just before life wakes up. The aloneness of it. The quiet and stillness of dawn is my favorite time of the day.
"Sicilia" is dedicated to the at first subtle and then blazing and dramatic coming of the day.
As of this writing "Sicilia" is available for collection in my Italy studio.
