Let Them In

As I was working on this painting, POTUS was attempting to force limits on immigration of fugitives from war in the Middle East.  Like many others, whose citizenship in this country is a result of ancestors fleeing from forced partipation in killing other human beings, I felt that it was important to add my voice and presence to a demonstration at our Capitol.  My intuitive painting process resulted in some human-like figures emerging through the arches that I had created, and the title of the painting announced itself to me.  "Let Them In!"

Vernal Equinox

One of my paintings was chosen for the current exhibit at .Tamarack, the beautiful visitors center that showcases the "Best of West Virginia " arts and crafts.  This exhibit explores the intersection between art and science.  My piece, while abstract, might reflect the Lenten season and the astrological event when day and night are of equal length.
