I spend a lot of time looking at my paintings that hang on our home gallery walls.
I am always noticing new things about them. Some I like, others I want to change.
Yesterday, I had a huge revelation. I realized that all of my paintings over the past year, have an overriding theme of seeking balance.
Life since Covid has continued on , but different in so many ways; more so for some people than others. It has definitely not been equal. It is hard to stay balanced as things continually change.
Through my painting, I have been almost subconsciously, exploring and wrestling with how that new world might look and feel.
Now that I am aware of this striving for balance, will it change how and what I paint ? I don’t know.
Here are three of my newest paintings that delve into that concept.
I hope that there is something that speaks to you in them that brings you a moment of peace and joy.
