2019

Blue and Far 30”x24” paint on wood panel

I have never been an optimistic person. In grade school, learning vocabulary, the teacher asked us if we were optimists or pessimists. A girl I had eyes for said, “Oh, we are both optimists.” She was a bit smarter than I was, but as she explained the difference, I knew she was horribly mistaken.

For some odd reason, I am filled with an unrealistic optimism for the new year. I am making my living painting, it’s not easy. My days are only getting shorter, never mind. I have a vision for my work, mastery of my materials. For the first time in my life I know my greatest work is ahead. I am excited to make it.

I hope you all find passion and meaning in 2019.

  1. Your words here really moved me. I have be a huge admirer of your work for some time, in fact I would say you are easily my favourite (sorry, Brit living in Canada!) Instagram artist. If I painted anything close to one of your pieces once I’d probably die happy. Thank you for bringing so much haunting beauty and serenity into my life.
