I am working on a new painting. I want to capture the essence of the love that lives with in my home. I feel safe in my house. It is my haven. It is small and cozy and the colors make me feel calm and comforted. I don’t have any formal rooms. I grew up with a plastic covers on our furniture and I swear I still have the indentations in my thighs. I had to carefully peel myself off the couch. I didn’t want my own home to be like that and it isn’t.
The architecture I chose in my painting is actually not my house, but the feelings reflected within are. This painting is a stretch because I am more comfortable working with organic shapes. It is a good challenge for me. My new painting honors my older son Andy who just got engaged. I am so excited to have a daughter to love. My home is richer already.
“Our Home” will be exhibited at Symmetry Gallery upon completion.
