This is in the same square as the last painting. Occasionally I will create a painting that I really like and I could not pin point an exact reason why. It is very difficult for the maker to separate the object from the experience. I can identify elements that please me compositionally and emotionally. I suppose the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In Austin, I had been volunteering at the Yellow Bike Project. The model for this organization began in Amsterdam. I saw the bikes everywhere and felt a sense of ownership.
