After a few months of being tired, ill and unmotivated, I’ve been working on some big paintings lately and this one was inspired by a smaller one I did a couple of years ago that’s still one of my personal favorites. I really like the 36 x 36 size and it’s hanging over my sofa in my newly painted den/kitchen/great room until it goes to my upcoming exhibit. What do you think?
I’ve always been fascinated with mermaids. I love the beach, although most beach themed decor bores me silly. I decided to paint my own mermaid for my bathroom, which is my safe haven after a long day. Here she is, shimmering in the surf.
This is another one I started as part of expressing my grief at my father’s death. It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but it became clear that the goddess wanted to be seen. I obliged! I don’t know how much my dad would like it, but it’s a tribute to him anyway. She now lives in the crafts room of a dear friend.
I’m finally satisfied with this painting, which I approached in an entirely different way. It’s exciting! Every time I look at it, I see something I didn’t see the last time. This is thrilling to me, and now that my perspective is colored by the current political climate, what I see in it has moved me to call it simply Resist. How many different things do you see?
