My Own Attempts at Art: “Alive” (abstract watercolor painting)
I painted this piece with watercolors while an undergraduate student at UC Santa Cruz in 1986 or ’87. I promptly titled it “Alive.” I felt it expressed an enthusiasm for life pushing, shining through.
I vaguely remember arriving in my dorm room one evening where my roommate at the time and a friend of his were hanging out and painting. They invited me to join them in making some art. This was the result.
I'm gay, married, Pagan, and Progressive-minded from California, raised by hippie intellectuals. I relocated to Massachusetts for graduate school and never moved back to the Left Coast. My day job is that of psychotherapist in private practice, a profession I love with all my heart and a dream fully realized that I'd had since fifteen years of age.
These are my rantings, reviews, and reflections. If nothing else, I hope you find something worth reading here and leave the rest.
