The Urge for Going
The Urge for Going 5x7 Acrylic on canvas board
This is a whisper of a painting. Inspired the increasingly active geese flying over my place from a nearby lake, and also by Carla Sciaky, a Denver folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's cover of Joni Mitchell's song of the same name. I first heard her in the '80s and saw her play solo and with The Motherfolkers, the most carefully pronounced name in show business! I love her beautiful soprano and her baroque/early music influences.
