Irie Life 48×36 Acrylic

Irie Life is an intuitive painting of a sailboat. When painting intuitively, I don’t have a starting or end goal in mind. I study the shapes and colors and then the painting takes form.

Irie Life tells the story of a gathering of fellow warrior women that had just lost their chief. There’s a storm brewing in the whimsical orange sky.

The women had gathered in the Hopper House placed off to the left. This house shows up in different forms in many of my paintings created intuitively. It’s a place of healing and community.

Seems like there is a break happening in the storm…and the energy is being cleared. This painting depicts both the heavens and the earth with glowing colors. It includes all of the elements.

In this playfully whimsical mixed media painting, I’m sending out good vibes and feelings.

Can you feel it?

IRIE (i-’ree): a good feeling, contentment, and harmony. As in an Irie Life.
