Abstract Paintings

 

This body of work coincides with my retirement from what I used to do and represents the strivings and yearnings over twenty years of painting; and the desire to give away my art in exchange for your contribution to a charity of your choice.

I am reminded of a book called, Falling Upward, by Richard Rohr, who writes of the second half of life as a time to give back fully and freely.  He says that while the first half is developing the script, the second half is writing it and owning it.  I gather from his message that it can be fun.  He says,  “Get ready for some new freedom, some dangerous permission, some hope from nowhere, some unexpected happiness, some stumbling stones, some radical grace, some new and pressing responsibility for yourself and our suffering world.”

As I journey into this second half of life, I begin with a series of abstract paintings which I call In Solitude.  This series emerges from a place of stillness and peace in me which grounds me in the present and gives me courage to ask you to participate in this art exchange.
