“Isolation 1, 2, & 3” are paintings I created in September 2020. Although these paintings are expressive of the collective anguish and tears of sorrow from life’s current circumstances resulting from months of living in isolation; I find a thread of hope represented by the contrasting colors.

“Hope Lives” was the first large work I was inspired to create in early spring 2020. This was in the middle of March and in Texas it is green. We were just beginning to feel the pangs of the pandemic and I was happy to be painting in my upstairs spare room where I could see, feel and experience the changing seasons. Working on this painting filled my soul with the hope that spring always brings, renewal and promise.

“Pilgrimage” was created after I moved my studio to the garage with the promise of warmer weather. Although this work was not preplanned it became a spontaneous expression of my life’s journey. Only after adding multiple colorful layers I knew the painting had spoken. It represents my life’s joys, sorrows and challenges expressing my gratefulness for a life’s filled with God’s promises.

“Revival” This is the first painting in a series called “Revival” which I began in October. Because the pandemic was projecting more negativity into our lives, the global population sank deeper into the darkness. The word revival means “an improvement in the condition or strength of something”. I knew I wanted to express “lightness that penetrates the darkness” I knew the answer to this problem in my own life and desired to share it. Even though this painting holds no magic it represents the invisible; it is my desire the viewer can connect to the deeper meaning through the visible content.

“The Second Mountain” is a painting inspired by the landscape of no particular place but combined memories of various places. It is a 3-D sculptural painting that actually feels like the terrain of rocks and crevices visible in nature. The colors, warm and cool remind me of beautiful oceans, night and day. This painting is a statement about the bountiful enjoyment of nature and its gift to us.

Artist’s Statement

The human race has been through a difficult and unique experience this past year. Each of the above paintings were created during 2020. I have tried to express as I felt compelled to do so in the moments that presented themselves working in my home studio. It is always my desire that each viewer has an emotional connection to the artwork and will interpret according to their own viewing experience.
