Storm King in October took my breath away.
Happy New Year to my followers and those I met this year at open studios and art shows. Your encouragement and support is important to me and I thank you for a wonderful year. I am ending 2015 in the studio with this painting of blazing trees and grown-out fields from a magnificent fall afternoon at Storm King Art Center. Here, what you see is what you get. Beauty. Light. Color. I’ve spent the time between Christmas and New Years in the meditative branches and leaves of this tree, and dove in perhaps too deeply. Creating the color and textures have lifted my spirits as much as anything else I could possibly find.
New Year resolutions are in the works, with plans to paint and draw and look at a lot of artwork frequently. For 2016, I hope that you can continue to walk out your door every day with unending curiosity and explore the world in love, peace and safety.
