This painting reminds me of Santa Fe. I loved the process of making this piece. There is a playfulness and childlike quality to the painting. Authenticity is the path. No matter what path you follow, if you are authentic, every path leads to the goal. And the opposite is also true. No matter what path you follow, if you are not authentic you will not reach anywhere. Your authenticity brings you back home, nothing else. All paths are secondary. The basic thing is to be authentic, to be true. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Pina

Pina Loves has always painted, but never thought about selling her work until four years ago. She was helping a group of young adults plan their futures, and at that moment, she decided to take her own advice. Three weeks later, she sold her first painting. Pina begins her paintings as a meditation, never knowing what will happen. She chooses the color she’s drawn to and goes from there. Utilizing an experimental and playful approach when painting, she tries not to get attached to the outcome, letting the painting come to her.
