As I may have mentioned, recently I got to be part of a 3-artist show at the Lemon Street Gallery in Kenosha. That was a delightful experience. Here were all these walls to fill, and the other two artists were mostly doing jewelry and sculpture. After I hung about 20 paintings and stood back, I was struck by the fact that there wasn’t an underlying theme. Some botanicals, some landscapes, some gardenscapes. Hmmm. And of course when people arrived, so did their questions. They wanted, naturally enough, to know what it was I wanted to convey. Well, I’ve been giving that some thought and here is what I’ve come up with. I create art to help people connect with nature and with their inner spirit. Now that I know that is what I’m about, I can look for ways to make that message clear in my paintings.
So, here is my wish for peace and connectedness to all of you this steamy hot July afternoon!
