Opening February 13th, 2021
A show of fields and flowers, most painted from life, and a few worked up from studies. A journey through the seasons.
Many of these paintings were done in the last year, and as I sorted through them, selecting work for this show, I was brought back to the moments in which they were created. They were moments of grace, however hectic or anxious or troubled the times were in which they were set.
A sample of the pieces in the show.
A painting, or a moonrise or a frost-wreathed tree, doesn't fix anything in the world.
But in looking, and in creating,
in noting the good, beautiful, true, and excellent,
we can fulfill one small thing we're called to do - to "think on these things" - and there is power and peace in that.
And these pieces have the chance to do a little more besides:
Frameworks is generously donating a portion of the proceeds to a local organization working to support single-parent families in the area. I'm happy to have the opportunity for my work to play a small part in that!
The exhibit will be available for viewing in person during gallery hours, and online

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on these things.
