Living in California, where we have been bathed with clear sunny warm weather, and listening to the news about the east coast snow storms it brought back old memories of cold frosty days. Now those memories are from when I was a child living in Boston so they are a bit frosty as well. Never the less, I seem to remember the park looking a bit like this and we, bundled up in five layers of clothes, would drag our "flyer" (a type of sled for those of you who don't know the name) up the hill and slid to the bottom. This continued until we were to wet and cold to try again. So home we went to a hot chocolate and a warm furnace. All of these memories whirled through my mind while painting this piece.
I have selected to delve into the world of art in the fourth chapter of my life. I have always enjoyed art museums and the variety of interesting ways people express what they feel or see. My background is in finance and politics so this endeavor is a wonderful departure and enlightening experience. I truly enjoy the learning process. There is so much to understand and express through this medium. For now most of my work is in watercolors, a bit of mixed media and some acrylics. I have found this is a great way to network with other artists and share my work with friends. Please enjoy my work and watch it evolve.
