New Art, Braille Institute Class and Quote.
Since the last newsletter, I have continued to focus on my acrylics. One of my new pieces, Explore, is shown above. When I painted it, I was influenced by the exuberance and callings of summer. Other nature inspired pieces can be seen on my website, including Mountain Dreams and Mysteries Within. Summer also means the 4th of July, and fireworks have always been an important part of every summer. The colors are exceptional, and helped inspire my painting above, Sparkler Skies.
As I mentioned in a previous newsletter, and as shown in the photo above, I have a wonderful group of vision-impaired students in my class (entitled Bold and Beautiful) at the Braille Institute. It is very rewarding to volunteer there and feel the joy my students experience in exploring art, color, themes, and expression. There are so many reasons for gratitude.
Now for my quote of the month: "Freedom lies in being bold." Robert Frost.
Thank you for reading my newsletter and for your support of contemporary abstract art. I look forward to hearing from you. And, happy 4th of July!
