I visited an architectural salvage store where I was lost in subject matter material. This piece was inspired by a giant mid-century carved wood panel from Italy. The shapes intrigued me, as did the various shades and grain of wood (definitely a future painting), but for now, just for fun I wanted to paint it with bright colors. It was challenging, yet fun to mix so many shades of green, and to adapt some of the shapes to be suitable for a painting. It reminded me so much of my quilting days, which greatly inspired my early paintings. I think this painting could be hung in four different directions, although this is my preference.
