Part of her conversation offered during the June 1 Art Walk, “Doing Good Works”

“Observing and painting is a meditation, an active appreciation, a way
to connect intuitively with nature.  When I turn to the peace of  beaches, the strength of trees in shadow, the spirited persistence of the changing weather or the flickering light on water, I feel refreshed, exhilarated, enriched.  I absorb a scene, focus on the mood, simplify the important features and begin to visualize a way to suggest
feelings and ideas and create a sense of life.”
