This painting was a result of an early morning bout of creativity. I think it was around 1am when I started making this painting. The lines and colors are clearly having fun, which is interesting to me because this particular bout of creativity was due to the aftermaths of a panic attack during
depression that left my brain a desolate place to be living. My soul hangs out in a different place than my brain, and it was grabbing onto the colors and activity so I could paint a picture that would remind my brain of a better time and pull me back to safety.
Origin of Early Morning on West 80th
The original hangs in my apartment. I can't bear to part with it because it makes me so happy, but prints are available.
