A Momentary Distraction

Hello Friends:

"All the arts we practice are apprenticeship. The big art is our life" M. C. Richards

The big art that is MY life has certainly usurped a good deal of energy from my art practice these last few months. Family vacations, a daughter starting a new career, a son off to Colorado for college, and a son starting a challenging year in high school have taken my focus away from painting. But I needed to devote myself wholeheartedly into my life to be able to return with a fresh perspective to my painting.

I hope to include this piece in an upcoming gallery show. I'll give you more details as the date draws closer. My plan is to paint people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds surrounded by loose splashes of color. It's an exciting new phase for me, and I hope that you find it enjoyable!
