5 Years of Art

Here’s my self-portrait for March, 2014.

I’ve been brave enough to share my art online for 5 years now.

I began this blog in March of 2009 and have shared over 620 posts.

Each and every comment is appreciated, and I feel fortunate to be

part of the online art community.

Art has been, and will continue to be, the best medicine.

As always, for more photos, drawings, and art related posts, check out my FB page.

“Girl with Opera Glasses”, after Degas

I started this painting 4 months ago.  It’s called “Girl with Opera Glasses” by Edgar Degas.

I sketched it onto a canvas that a friend of mine found in a dumpster.  The things people throw out!

It already had a thick, ivory coat of paint on it.

Look! There’s Knox in the background! He was being so sweet and patient while I took some process photos.

I miss him so much.

I had no idea that Knox would be gone before I finished this painting.  I was about two-thirds done when he passed away.

Now I think about this image in a completely different way.

It’s interesting to consider this image now in light of what has transpired over the last few weeks.

In many ways, I am this woman.

I’m still looking for answers as to why my life has been turned upside down; I’m still trying to understand why my son is not with me.

I wish I had some magic glasses to look through.  I want to see where he is and what he’s doing.

As long as I live, I’ll look forward to the day I can see my little boy clearly again, close up.
