All of my paintings have a special place in my heart. However, every once in a while there is a painting that brings a bit of nostalgia with it. This 48″x36″, oil painting in progress is one of them. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my late grandmother. I have a fond memories of visiting her house and sitting with her in her kitchen drinking tea. Reflecting back on those memories brings me a sense of comfort.
I tried to capture that same peaceful comfort in this painting.
February is off to a great start. I sold a piece and won two awards. An Award of Excellence for my piece on panel “Two Figures” and an Award of Merit for “Comfortable with Our Love” in the 4th Biannual Competition, Four Point Contemporary, Online Gallery with Juror: Ahyor Thompson. Submissions were received from artists from approximately 32 countries. I am feeling really grateful that I sold a piece as well as for the recognition.
