Apple Cart 12 x 16 Acrylic on Panel
|Snow on the Woodshed 12 x 16 acrylic on panel|
The last few weeks I have been painting images from a warm and fondly remembered past. I have recently been longing for a time in my life that was less fearful and complicated.
Painting is my own safety zone for memories, thoughts and ideas. I can push myself forward or fall back at my own rhythm. Maine and Prince Edward Island are places where I connect with my family and friends, with nature and a slower pace...
In a season that has been filled with worries and concerns for the future and where the unknown looms very large, painting provides a present moment space of fierce awareness. It separates me from the chaos of the news, the phone and the internet, and leaves some room to take a breath.
