Peace Talks is a series I have worked on for several years. Most if not all the paintings have one or more figurative shapes paired with the three interlocking circles. There is something very comforting about these paintings for me as an artist and as a human. They seem to capture the oneness of nature at a moment of peace. The painting process like all of mine is nothing like the final result; it is more often wrought with turmoil and angst of how certain stages are progressing or digressing; and the ever present fear of failure, but as each layer is added and pieces of the whole are subtracted by either paint or scraping, a sense of peace and tranquility prevails. I begin to feel one with the work, and it is only then that I know; it was worth the extra effort it entailed. I think it is fun to see the work in infantile growing stages and then the final result. I hope others feel the same.
Merry Christmas to everyone!! Sending you Peace and Joy from my studio to your heart!
