My paintings are inspired by the people and things that I hold in my heart...as I wondered where to begin this phase of my working life, a quote from the movie, "Mr. Holland's Opus" seemed to resonate with common sense: the instructor counsels his music student to "play the sunrise" (which is how she describes her red hair - the one thing she loves about herself). My paintings thus far have been of the people and things that truly make my heart sing, and therefore it is a joy to put these beloved images onto canvas. I am a retired cultural art manager; I have always practiced art for commercial purposes as a smaller aspect of my career. I'm now delving into my preferred medium-- oil-- and finding fantastic freedom in the ability to paint subjects, feelings, and memories of my own personal choosing.
