Inopportunities for Preperation

I don't know why the plural for 'inopportunity' doesn't seem to exist, but I guess it does here and now. This painting started from a live session but then wandered far elsewhere. I was imagining this woman in her bright red blouse wandering out in the snow - why ? Because that's just where she ended up. That's exactly how I feel in life right now - I'm really content and grateful but I have no real idea of how I ended up where I am. Very often life just sort of unceremoniously propels us into terrains and experiences which there is simply no way to prepare for. The impact of these experiences are what they are precisely because of our inability to foresee (or avoid) them. Life is so much bigger than all of us. Oil on panel 24" x 12"
