Ahhh…February. A sign that spring is around the bend. I don’t know about you, but I feel a sense of hope. Winter might (might…) be ebbing. February is hope and romance. Valentine’s day. What images and smells come to mind when you think of February? Chocolate? Roses? Can you smell it? Close your eyes and imagine.
For Valentine’s day this year, I painted a special piece, a work that expresses hope, joy, and love. Something we need to remember. When asked about what Valentine’s Day means to me, a word came to mind.
This painting will be in our new group show at Tumalo Art Company. The show is entitled “The Joy of Everyday Things”, and is tied in with Bend’s Joy Project #bendjoyproject.
Enjoy the new work, and find it and other paintings of mine at Tumalo Art Company, Hood Avenue Art, and other venues. The Source and other new work is currently installed at North Soles Footwear in downtown Bend, OR.
