Well it is a new year, new challenges, and new work. As I sit on a beach and feel the warmth of the sun watching the beautiful blast of orange disappear into the water I smell the salt air and feel refreshed, encouraged and blessed.
I am looking forward to the new year, new challenges, new work and meeting new clients and connecting with previous clients who choose to have my work in their homes. At present I am on my 3 month painting sabbatical and pressing the refresh button. I will begin a new series on paper in 2017 as well as continue my present work and taking this time to paint mentally and design a hanging system for the new work.
I wish all the best for 2017 and look forward to my creative journey. When looking into each layer in the close up image of a piece below, I think of all the ways in our world we intersect and relate, I want to look deep not just on the surface see everything. I don't want to miss anything and I want to learn, enjoy and taken in as much as possible and hope that kindness defines 2017.
.............................but the story will continue just in a different location. I am writing to let everyone know that I am giving up my River Arts District Studio in the Hatchery. I am going to continue my work at home. I have a lovely studio and feel that it is time to come back home. I want to move into some new work and experiment. I can do this much better at home and feel that I need the solitude to complete this next journey.
