View from the Hill

View from the Hill


Yesterday was a busy day for me. I made orange marmalade, put the finishing touches on my latest painting, and started a new canvas. Below is View from the Hill, oil on canvas, 16″ x 20″.  A former art teacher used to say I painted like I was on acid.  Yeah... Sure

The OLPE Art Exhibit: Extension and Receptions

Exhibition: Our Lady of Perpetual Exhaustion, September 7 – October 19, 2013

The first two receptions came and went. The show has drawn a lot of interest.  Each piece of art represents the artist’s interpretation of the theme accompanied by a narrative explaining the artwork. I wrote the following narrative to describe my painting, Grief:

“The theme of the exhibition inspired me to revisit my paintings of women in distress. I have always been drawn to create portraits of suffering women. It is my way of paying homage to my mother and the women in my family, not only because of their tenacity to face daily challenges, but also for the courage and resolve with which they confront life’s adversities. Grief reflects all these things and more – pain, exhaustion, grief, despair.”
