Bruised Reed (2016)

My newest acrylic on paper.  I’m finding myself painting with renewed vision and vigor.  It is refreshing and exciting in that each time I pick up my brushes and set out to paint I have no idea what to expect or what will emerge in the end.

Vine

I sketched this about two years ago and was thinking about this sketch recently.  I decided to re-sketch it and paint it.  It makes me consider the things in my life that might actually be harming me that I choose to hold onto.  Those things are like a vine wrapping tighter and tighter around one’s heart and soul squeezing the life and joy right out.  My encouragement today is, “Let them go.  Just open your hand and let them go.”
