June, 2020 :: What a joy to be welcomed back to the gallery in the role of artist, by the current owner, and my friend, Tarek Nemr.
I began to paint this ongoing series in March 2020, during the time of the Covid-19 pandemic and the mandate of physical isolation.
‘Listening’ to the harmonies of colors, the music of repeating patterns, and following the variations on a theme were all ways that helped me to stay present in the moment, while also feeling the fears, griefs and sorrows of mine and our fellow humans.
As ever, painting what is in my heart is one way I know how to share JOY. This series continues to surprise me with endless inspirations.
For me, welcoming joy and grief together is attuning to the great love that holds us, expressing in all moments. This is what I’m working to convey through color on canvas.
