What Comes Naturally


"Evening Conversation with My Sister"
acrylic on canvas, 36" x 36" x 2"

I am not the type to hold in emotions. Sometimes I try, for appearance sake, or to preserve another's dignity. Which is just one more reason why I am so thankful for my ART.

I have been processing some bad news about a family member. Not even one day has passed since I heard, but oh the many minutes my mind has been wrapped around it.

This painting is in response to that. I had no plan when I started, just a basic composition, plus three colors of paint, plus black and white. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and it says just what I want. That makes it a successful painting to me.
