What We Leave Behind

As I get older I am beginning to think more about what I do as an artist and how it reflects on my life. I have to admit that what I now produce will probably last longer than I do, and this makes me consider more carefully what I create. As artists we want to leave a record of what we saw in our brief time here, what moved us, what inspired us. Our work will define us to others later on. That's must be why I work, rework and re-rework a piece until I see what I like - fear of not being liked after I'm dead. If you are a therapist, feel free to leave your e-mail address.

This is a new one I painted after last week's trip to Cades Cove. I call it Mown Grass, 9" x 12".
