About "In The Midst Of My life"
Oftentimes in my studio, I listen to music as I work. Sometimes it’s quiet, but most times there is something ambient or classical in the background. During the two feverish days I spent on this piece, I was spending some time with Max Richter and his album “Voyager.” Voyaging is often what it feels like to be an intuitive painter. Every time I approach the canvas, its as if I prepare myself to take a little trip, and have no idea what my final destination will be. It can be the most exhilarating experience indeed. Nearing what I felt could be the end of this particular pink painting, the song “Dream 3 (in the midst of my life)” came on. This song has a definite pull for me, takes me on a voyage of space and time whenever I have the chance to listen to it intently. And I knew immediately this was the title of the painting, “In The Midst of My Life,” as that is where I seem to be at this very moment.
