This painting was triggered by a memory challenge. The question was "what picture would I create if I thought about a childhood vacation." This visualization came to mind. It was my vacation with my cousins on the cape when I was 15 years old. I remember the vibrant colors of the mornings and evenings so I have tried to reflect that in this painting. I had great fun painting remembering a time when only the fun of the day was important and nothing else.
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.
