I grew up artistically at Kenderdine Campus and still miss it. I have struggled to find a satisfying way to keep busy artistically through the winter months. Sometimes printmaking intrigues me. Recently I have been delving into abstraction and learning a lot about myself. The focus for abstraction comes from within, a very different experience from En Plein Air.
Painting involves so much more than just looking at the scene and reproducing it. There is the emotional reaction to the scene. Then, there is the wind on your skin, the sun on your face, the smells around you and the sounds of nature interrupting your thoughts. It involves all your senses and creates an experience like no other.
I continue to teach which I enjoy immensely. Being able to be part of the process of others finding joy in creating is an energy producing experience. It enriches all our lives.
