Piece description from the artist
This painting was inspired by the events in Boston this week. The officials told the people to Shelter in Place… I had never heard that phrase before. It occurred to me that we need to be able to cope with so many changing circumstances in this crazy world – that we would be well served if we carried our own shelter within us. So, I painted this woman wistfully, blissfully safe in her own sheltered place.
I've always painted. I was the kid who started an Art Club in school, won all the art contests, decorated the bulletin boards…
I'm sure you know the type. ;-)
When it was time for college, I studied art in Missouri, Alaska, Maine, Connecticut and Europe. Eventually I earned a BS in Studio Art & Art History in CT, which is where I have lived all my adult life.
I am so lucky – I paint every day and sell my work online. I've sold hundreds of paintings on ebay and etsy. I also sell my work locally and teach watercolor painting at a shop near my house. So, I'm never bored! I paint whimsical images that make me smile, and hopefully, they will make you smile too!
I so love and appreciate my art collectors!
