Anticipation and Hope
When I was painting Anticipation (shown above), I was feeling deeply restless, but also thankful. Like most people I know, I really miss interacting with others at art shows, in my university classes, at the gym, and in other places. At the same time, I am so thankful for all of the scientists and medical professionals who are working day and night to help us contain the pandemic, as well as my family, friends, including you.
Are you monitoring developments closely? Some days I do, and some days I don't. My painting Watching reflects a day of observing bad and good news, with hope.
My quote of the month is from someone who experienced extraordinary challenges with wisdom: Martin Luther King, Jr. He said, "We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."
Especially now, thank you for reading my newsletter and for supporting original contemporary art. I look forward to hearing from you.
