This painting was a joy to do. It just came together so quickly. It's a copy of a UK artist's work by David Pierce. I love the way he sees and abstracts his paintings. I'm a great admirer of his style.
I love this original work. It's bright and cheery! Being quarantined during the virus pandemic has not affected my life as it has those who have lost loved ones. Although I know the grief of having a loved one die, as my son Walter left this earth a year and a half ago. I pray for the comfort of God to be with us all as this epidemic continues.
Is really the master bedroom in my new apartment. It has great big windows so the light is wonderful to paint by.
My painting titled, Blue Landscape is on exhibit at the National Humanities Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, from February 22 - June 22, 2019. This exhibit is in partnership with the Visual Arts Exchange, VAE, and juried by Joshua White photographer and professor at the Appalachian State University.
I painted this in my old naive style. I like to combine naive with abstract. I'm always learning with each new work I do.
This was painted as a thank you for a very kind woman, Pat Mitchell who I stayed with for many months while my son was hospitalized on Long Island.
Long Island is a haven for artists who love to paint seascapes. This is one of them. It's a large painting, 30" X 40". I'm now back in North Carolina. Two hours away from the Outer Banks. One day I have to get out there.
My most recent work. This was inspired from a watercolor I did while I was with my son Walter in New York. It's from his room on the 18th floor at Stony Brook Hospital on Long Island. His room faced the Long Island Sound and Connecticut. On many nights the sunsets were amazing from his window. 36" X 48" Acrylic on canvas. Still a work in progress.
This was painted around the time my son Walter died. He died on December 4th. He was injured in a car accident and spent almost two years in hospitals and nursing homes on Long Island. We prayed the 23rd Psalm almost every day; or I did and he would say amen at the end. He endured so much with all the operations and setbacks and never once complained. I am so thankful I was with him almost daily during this ordeal and for my oldest son Richard and friends who helped and supported us with their love and prayers. God was a faithful protector and friend through it all.
I entered the annual Guild Hall Clothesline Art Sale in East Hampton. It's a nice venue for local artists to show off their work. I sold this one titled "Hampton Summer".
