“When Winter Ends, Can Spring be Far Behind?”…These are lines from one of my favorite poems, which I tried to show in this painting – the melting snow and the beginning of new golden shoots awakening from the marshes. Life renewing itself…

I am bipolar – mood swings have always been a part of my life, and so I wanted to show the dark and light side of my face. This painting is of me after I left Hollywood in the 60s and first began to know who I really was. I had started therapy but had not yet been diagnosed.

When I look at the gnarled shapes of trees and where they’ve lived for years, I sometimes imagine them in other lives…what they might be doing if we weren’t watching. Like these two trees on a lone hillside, arms wrapped around each other. I can see them as young lovers that secretly celebrate life each twilight by lighting up the sky with the fire they feel for each other…tirelessly waltzing beneath the stars till dawn! Only to return, in silence, to be old trees, again, wrapped in each others arms forever more.

These are dancing trees that have become separated by an ever-changing river. The males toss their fall leaves to lure the females on the other side,  who twist and shake to attract a partner. It’s dusk, and the creatures of the woodlands begin to warm up their vocal cords as the orchestra of rippling water plays on…nothing can keep these dancers apart now…no river can hold them back…and so these river dancers dance!
