“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself,
tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches;
for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Painting New Work in the Year of COVID-19

Covid-19 has made our lives more difficult in many ways, but it was unexpected godsend for me. For several years, I have been working on a book of my paintings. The pandemic allowed me to spend more time working in my studio.

The paintings in this exhibit are for a book called, Colorado Journal: A Collection of Watercolors, which will be published this November. It contains my paintings, descriptions of my experiences as an artist, and my life in Colorado.
