The Week of April 15-21, 2013
On Sunday, April 21, 2013, I finished a large (4′ x 3′) work on paper—painted with oil, watercolor and gesso. It wasn’t until I was done that I realized the artwork was filled with my outrage and grief resulting from the horrific Boston bombings. It has been proven that creating art of any type relieves stress, heals, and can help to release anxieties. I was thankful to be able to put paint to paper these last few days. It seems as though I have done that a lot this year. There have been too many tragedies. My prayers go out to all those maimed, in pain, missing loved ones and suffering.
