Wishing everyone a Happier New Year!
Sometimes it’s all a clutter.
Today’s post is a somewhat stylized image of the house I grew up in.
No doubt it faced its share of storm clouds but at its foundation it was a place where the heart was.
This is not my first go round with social isolation. When I was 13 I struggled through a bout of Rheumatic Fever. I was in the hospital for two months after which I was confined to our house for an additional two months. It was during this pre-internet era that I was forced to find a way to pass time when I couldn’t go outside. My mom bought me a fantastic set of markers, and they came in a tin case decorated with Van Gogh’s “Café Terrace at Night”. It was my first introduction to Fine Art. I loved those markers and I kept the tin long after the markers had run dry. Many springs have passed since that time, but it was there that the seeds were sown for a lifetime love of image-making.
Keep safe everyone.
Beginning 2020 by the seashore.
Hoping there is something special inside for each and every one of us, Happy New Year.
Rockers gotta rock.
Work is done, it’s time for fun.
