The one blessing in this extraordinary time is the mental space for reflection and studio work. Frequent walks around Squalicum Harbor have inspired my newest series of paintings, Marina Reflections. My interest is purely visual, but the metaphorical content is not lost on me. I am grateful to find direction and meaningful work amid all the chaos that is beyond our control. Despite the calamity swirling around us, there is hope. The human spirit lifts us to create and to enjoy art, music, poetry and all that is still available to enrich our lives.
