RANCHO DE TAOS – THE CHURCH GEORGIA O’KEEFFE PAINTED

Spring was a time of amazing productivity and recognition of my work. I enjoyed a solo show, a group show, a museum exhibit at the Crocker Museum, a local magazine cover art feature and a nice commission. I also attended an Intensive Study Seminar in Taos, New Mexico that has transformed the way I think of myself as an artist as well as influenced the direction of my work.

I returned to work invigorated and inspired. I was confronted with some realities of life – friends failing health and unsettling current events. Turning inward to explore life’s trials, I painted “The One’s We Love.” After this painting I was free to explore other concepts of “lighter heart.”

We take life as it comes, its sweet springtime offerings and the trials and losses that, for me, presented themselves in the heat of mid-summer. Choosing what to focus upon, what to honor, what to release…that is up to us.

With Gratitude –
