"Love Potions" are taking over the porch! We install the work on Sat with the artist reception on the following Sat. and I am scared to death. The 3 large canvas paintings are just too big for my studio. The newest (and just finished) sculpture is out on the porch, paint drying. I have had such growth with this work! It is not the work you are expecting to see from me; it is not the pretty pictures of flowers, landscapes, life studies. That work was created for others, to like, to sell. It does not matter if this work sells, it matters that I turn my heart inside out and tell you a story.
It’s a love letter to myself, confirmation that I will go on, flamboyant, vulnerable and disturbing. It is my heart screaming….can you hear me….this is what it looks like!
