This painting was done one night when I was so angry. All of my friends and coworking were all going down to Phoenix to see Lollapalooza. I was stuck working. I was not happy. I was down right pissed off. In all of my late teen/early 20’s this was tragedy. After I got home from work, I started slapping that paint down. Zinging all around. Eventually I relaxed. Soothed my turmoil. One, I think the only one of my friends that didn’t go down came by the apartment. And we took off to get a bite to eat. I have kept this painting in my personal collection for so many years. It was a part of me I could not part with. As I grew, it served as a reminder, that we can’t always get what we want. I also realized that in the grand scheme of things, it really was not all that important – although I’m sure that many would debate that. It amazes me now that I am so mellow now, so much different from back then. But I am in a constant state of learning to let go.
