Sugar on the Floor

“Sugar on the Floor"

The juxtaposition of the stark, peeling white corner (just outside of Mama's kitchen) against this tiny, beautiful little girl (who has stolen her Mama's sugar,) is a heart-wrencher. "Sugar on the Floor" is  inspired by an Etta James song. It is on her "Burnin' Down the House" album. Sugar on the Floor was written by Kiki Dee. This insatiable song has also been covered by Elton John. A sampling of the lyrics are exactly what I am striving to convey in this sweet little painting...

All I need,
all I need is somebody to love
All I need,
all I need is somebody to care about me
So I won’t be wasted
Oh, wasted on the floor
Oh I, oh I
I feel like I’m sugar on the floor

Inspiration behind the Church Cat

December 22, 2019

I am a very spontaneous and splashy artist, and the Arteza pens react immediately, almost like confetti!  What I mean by this is, “whatever happens, happens” and I am satisfied with the result. I assume the universe is giving me divine direction. This exercise is extremely gratifying (and necessary) for a watercolor artist.
