Deep Thoughts

"Deep Thoughts"        Image:  8" x 10"

This painting is pretty deep.  The figures in the center are my husband and I, holding my broken heart.  The dark figures on the left are my mom and the other residents in the memory care unit where she is residing now, (a 10 hour drive away) with no visitors allowed.  The figure on the right depicts the Corona Virus and how it is stealing our time with our loved ones.  Much love to all of you as we all struggle with this horrible time in our lives.  I'm very thankful to have a patient husband, loving friends and family, and my artwork to help work out my frustrations. Stay safe....

So, below are the steps to this painting, that I used only 3 colors:  New Gamboge, Winsor green (blue shade), and alizarin crimson.  Very unusual colors for me.  I scrubbed out some lights at the end, using masking tape to block it off.  I also cropped so that it would be better design.

  1. I just watched your segment online, and wished you had done an interview at the end like many of the others. So I decided to come to your blog to learn a little bit more about you. I am sorry for the situation you find yourself with your aging parents being so far away and inaccessible to you, not to mention the increased fear of the virus for the elderly. I enjoy your work -I used to work in similar ways many years ago, but being a wanderer, i have travelled through many mediums. Your video excited me to return again to play with these ideas. I also studied with Gerald Brommer and Virginia Cobb, as well as MANY others in that period, and feature their artwork in my home. It is sad that many of those greats have now passed away, and thrilled that their legacies live on in us! Blessings, Sharon Lynn Williams (
