Thank-you Big Brothers Big Sisters

Rire a la Blague Cosmique (Laughing at the Cosmic Joke)

This 48 x 36 splash of colour sold for 1,000.00 last Saturday evening at the Big Brothers, Big Sisters fundraiser. It feels so good to use the power of art to help others!

The idea, and feelings in this piece are about imagining what it would be like if you were in a small boat at sea, in the midst of a hurricane. Pretty terrifying, right? I mean it would be absolutely stunningly beautiful, but you'd likely be way too terrified to appreciate it. So, this painting allows us to enjoy the beauty without the fear. We can laugh at the danger and our own mortality, at least in symbolic form.
