I feel heavy in my soul. Uncharacteristic for me, I feel despair for our future.

I struggle to paint but paint I must. As I paint, I return to my dominion, my internal sparkle, and I find hope. I share this with you.

May you know your dominion, your sparkle, and share with our world.

Glimpses of work in process. You will be the first to see them when they are finished.

A work about cognitive decline in my mother… There is more to the story, but I am not ready to share yet. I started this painting after a recent joyful and sad visit.
