Come on say it with me, ” RazMaTaz RazMaTaz”.
I don’t know what it is about this piece but it makes me just want to say it over and over again, “RazMaTaz”. Maybe it’s actually razzle metazzo or other ways of saying it but when I was growing up for some reason my mom every once in awhile would bust out and say, “RazMaTaz”. I don’t know if it was her way of getting the attention of her five children or if she just had a happy thought in her head.
The word just popped out of my head while finishing up this piece. When the word popped into my brain I immediately thought of my birth mother that I lived with until the age of 12 or 13. She was bouncy and happy on her good days. Which there were many of those days in growing up with her. The colors on the canvas came out in a “RazMaTaz” kind of way.
When I painted this piece I was actually in a very state of pure happiness and joy. When I paint with lots of color I’m usually in that state of joy and happiness. I’m typically a very happy person anyway but this particular piece reminded me of being 4 years old and hearing my mother say, Elizabeth, “RazMaTaz.”
I have no deep thoughts or stories around how I started this piece. I just gathered an abundance of colors, mixed them up, gathered my painting tools and worked at it. After painting all the colors in a washed out fashion it seemed a bit drab and lacking the luster I think it needed. With the leftover paints I just started splashing the colors on. I love how this piece turned out. “RazMaTaz ” can brighten up your home.
