The "Rusted Hearts" series of paintings are about a lost relationship. This new work was a challenge. The paintings are exciting, but because of the heart forms I had to fight to keep spontaneity. Writing appears in these paintings and are keys to the nature of the work.
The band of color that cuts through the center of several paintings is the Rio Grande and represents the barrier of what kept us apart. The images and references to hearts and the borderlands of Mexico along with the colors of Willy Nelson's Texas are metaphors.
The dancing movements of my brush and my spirit were critical to the success of the paintings. They required splatters and drips, and most importantly the broken forms of broken dreams and broken hearts.
