ARTIST STATEMENT

"I am excited to be showing my work at the Creative Connections Gallery! This exhibit includes figurative and abstract paintings I have completed over the past six years. I am also including older collage and mixed media work as well as a sampling of my travel journals and sketchbooks. The paintings were all done in water-soluble oils, a medium new to me after years of working with watercolors, oils, and acrylics. Some of the landscapes were painted en plein air while for others I used photographs as a reference. The two self-portraits in the show were painted 56 years apart. In the first, I am 23 years old and in the other I am 79. I have changed! For both paintings, I used the same old gold leaf mirror. It has never changed. My work is in the Past, Present, and Future."
