I was perplexed about this piece for a long time. I didn’t know whether or not to put it in the show because it didn’t have a pink chair in it. But I absolutely love it. For me it says all that I went to Maine for and it felt like part of the series. I had to leave the spot where I was painting the first day because of a storm before it was finished and came back to finish a couple of days later, on the day before I had the awakening that I was going to be doing Pink Chair paintings. As I painted that day I had an incredible feeling of intensity when I was painting, like I had to do it fast – strong – NOW! It is part of what put the power in that tree. I think that the strength I felt had come from Mom and was just waiting inside to be named on the next day when I would be doing the first transformative painting, the one in which I felt her presence.. With tears in my eyes, on the last day of preparing paintings for this show, I realized that she was indeed there, but quiet and in the background. Her power had come through my paintbrush. So I painted her in, as she deserved.
