Artist Statement –
Three pieces of art in varied mediums, created while sheltering at home due to Covid. They are
- TUMULTUOUS created with oil paint and cold wax, framed to 13×17. This work is a rushing explosion of hot and cold.
- RIPPLE EFFECT created with acrylic and resin, framed 10″x10″. This is part of my small “Effect Series” of works resulting from the pandemic. Ripple Effect is described as “impact widens and expands”.
- REIGNITE FAITH is an acrylic painting on 18 x 24 gallery wrapped canvas . “Believe with all your heart and soul”
In January 2020, I was the featured artist at Sutter Creek Gallery (now closed) in Amador County. By the end of the month, I suddenly had severe aches and pains, and suffered with pneumonia for five weeks. As people from my church were in Wuhan China and got ill at Thanksgiving, it is unclear if I had covid or influenze. I did not paint in February, but got back in the art studio in March. While sheltering in place, my art was online in “open space art exhibits” on our property.
