Six months ago when I showed in the Marin Open Studios I submitted a piece of my work for window display. I entered one of my favorite pieces, "You have to be willing to lose everything." Literally this is written in the painting. It is a mantra of mine. I love the messy random way this painting turned out. During the show my piece was pushed to the back of the gallery. After the month long show I was asked to leave the painting to show in the window display. It was in a corner window, but not front & center. Then the other night I was at the shopping mall and spotted my painting, front & center in the new window show. Very exciting!
