Masked
Painted in shades of red, soft pink, orange, turquoise blue, and white.

In life, we often have to put on a mask. We are completely different people in different situations. We may start out one way and end up completely different as the situation demands.

Half Hearted
Painted in shades of fuchsia, soft pink, orange, yellow, brown, and white.

This painting started as a commentary on loss but as it progressed, it insisted on becoming warmer and more hopeful - with the colors continuing to warm and soften as I went.

Completed August 2022.

Well Oiled Machine
Painted in shades of cobalt turquoise (or teal) black, and white.

We moved to Detroit so my husband could work in the automotive industry. (That really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone – as it brings many folks into this area!) but I also grew up around cars. Somewhere along the way while I was painting, this work started to take on a somewhat vehicular appearance to me. What was I thinking about while I was painting? Oh, only how difficult it is for me to set up routines and systems for myself and how things would be so much easier if I could operate with assembly line precision.

Completed July 2022.

Fresh Start
I set a challenge for myself this Summer - a very limited palette in a color that I rarely used. Funnily enough, it ended up sparking a bit of a fresh new trend (isn't that always the way of personal challenges and pushing oneself?) Fresh Start helped free me not only from an artistic block but also led to an easy sale and my first commission. Aptly named, I suppose.

Work was sold in September 2022
Painted in shades of cobalt turquoise (or teal), yellow, and white.

Started and completed in the grips of a migraine. The soft base certainly reflected the beginning auras, while the final, sharper details reflect the paths out of the brain fog and haze.

Aura has been displayed at the Gutman Gallery as part of the Emerge group exhibition and can also be seen online as part of Abstract Expressions , Red Bluff Art Gallery 3-D Virtual Exhibit

Completed early Spring 2022

Swell
Large fields of color on a large scale with colors evoking seaside and waves. The buff and quinacridone nickel azo gold contrast with the deep blues and even touches of purple leading to the visual drama while still suggesting the peace and restfulness of a beachside retreat.

Completed Spring 2022

Squall
Painted in shades of blue, orange, yellow, and white.

The eye of the storm and the true depth of the storm are only separated by moments, yet the experience of each is dramatically different. This is something to keep in mind on bad days – to breathe, to wait, and to ride out the storm and see how things look as the storm passes.

Completed late Winter, early Spring 2022.

Traversal
Painted in shades of fuchsia, deep blue and purple, and light blues to white.

Traversal is a perfect encapsulation of the pushes and pulls in my life and artwork. My life has been full of curves and soft edges (and even loop-di-loos) while I have felt like I should have the order and structure that it seems other folks naturally have. I try to have that structure but can’t maintain it all that long. This is what having ADHD is like, with the constant war between a need for structure and order and the relative inability to maintain it forever.

Completed in Spring 2022.

Pink is Just a Color
Painted in shades of bright fuchsia pink, black and gray.

Pink is just a color – and women learn who they are through their relationships with others. Neither of these statements is as simple or as complicated as they seem.
