There is a sacred space somewhere between overwhelm and boredom, cradled in acceptance, grace, calm, and tranquility. The hum of the busy world becomes a soft lullaby, the heart settles, the mind rests. The lull. The hush. This is where God speaks. I invite you to experience this collection of painting as such.
The paintings displayed on these gallery walls are compiled from the past few years of intense artistic creation and discovery, an assortment of subject matter, approach, and medium, each created "from life" based on what was in front of me. They represent a range of skills and knowledge, focus, and intention, while also fully representing me, the artist, who created them.
When I was asked to put together this exhibit, I knew I would be drawing on past work for the collection, as my time has been consumed with many things other than art as of late. But in the clearing out of my studio, I've been able to rearrange, reset, attempt to balance, and plan a path forward... while giving myself grace in a season that requires me to be more mother, wife, provider, and employee, than artist, explorer, and creator. I am in that creative lull, fully, storing away ideas and inspirations for the summer bloom that is coming. And it is okay... and I am at peace.
