Opening night of my solo show was filled with so much love and support - my heart is full. This painting caught the attention of a man who sat on a leather couch at the gallery for one hour observing this painting. Thirty minutes into the hour I sat next to him and introduced myself - he continued to tell me why he loved this painting so much - that the colors danced and this painting grounded him. He asked me what inspired this painting... I shared with him I painted this during the election process as I needed a place to ground myself. I am forever inspired by photography - this painting found nuances of photographer Robert Farber figures and my recent passion with #goldenpaints Prussian blue along with a dress I recently purchased (my love for dresses). The evening ended with a sold painting and a commission- though those are gifts I am so grateful for I will remember this evening by all the stories, the friendships and love in my life.
