Generally the name of a painting comes to me as it is being created. This one eluded me for a bit. I finally asked some friends on Facebook their opinions about a name. Well, that was fun! People saw so many things in this image from the esoteric to the mundane. As I read thru their input, I was taken with the vastness of their realities… the width of their vision and from that came the name, "The reach of life." From the luscious sensation of fresh watermelon on the palate to sensational colors viewed thru NASA telescopes… all these from the near to so far, the intimate to the unreachable, the familiar to the unimaginable….all these are our lives. I encourage you to savor it all.
