I started this painting today, recreating an old farmstead I photographed last September in Penn Yan, New York. I loved filling in the bright sky, but especially starting the green grass brimming with sunshine. And I love all the shadows, too. It will be fun to do this one, I think. And it simply felt good to begin a new painting, something fresh for the coming spring. It’s a small work, only 8 x 10, and should be completed in a few sessions.
I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
