I’ve always had a creative outlet in my life, and for that I am truly grateful.
Time disappears and thoughts melt away. When the paint goes on just so, or my
line seems to flow effortlessly, I feel a deep sense of connection within myself.
Other times I struggle with dabbing and scrubbing, and even turning the painting
upside down to see what’s hiding in there.
I feel fortunate to have the time to experiment.
Painting from life has been a great teacher for me.
I’m learning to really see the subtle aspects of light, shadow, wind, and stillness
that cloak my subjects.
Also, time in the studio is important because I can play with the emotions, and
issues that percolate inside me.
