Edgar Degas knew: “Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do.”
Learning to be a better painter during the years of the pandemic has helped me stay focused. While I painted with watercolors and savored urban sketching during my travels for pre-pandemic years, I’ve come to enjoy painting still lifes and plein air (outside on location) with oil paints. Most recently I completed a challenge to paint for the first 31 days of 2022 and it was an illuminating challenge in ways I could not have expected. For starters, every grocery run brought new possibilities for painting!
While it was a great joy to build and sell musical instruments and make music for more than 12 years, I’m taking a reprieve from making and selling the instruments. I hope you will join me as the road curves and leads to destinations yet unseen or imagined.
