Like the other paintings in the Happiness Series, this is about creating the life of our desiring. The multiple dwellings represent my growing community of like-minded friends who do not wait for something to appear in their lives to give them cause to be happy. But are molding their physical experiences to reflect their inner happiness. Each home also has both an indoor and an outdoor space. Symbolic to me of the healthy blending of the public and private places within our lives. The reference scene (minus the huge stacked stones, of course) was shot at the beach near my studio on a magically lit summer’s evening that warms my heart to remember it.
