Girl in Wool and Dreams
This exhibition of paintings reflects my love for Baroque classical music, a warm fire, and a dream of travel. It blends life’s home base with a touch of Paris.
Gliding from “The Cellist” over works with central themes of gardens, hearths with fire, a corner flower shop, a portrait of Picasso, and a café singer, one lands finally in front of “the Small Stone House in Paris.”
This exhibition is an open door to the imagination, invoking my dream of travel, as well as the soft and quiet way of being at home, and the gentleness that comes from life’s simple treasures.
I believe that we carry with us the good of the past which serves as a comfort for our hearts and senses in our daily lives and preserves a future filled with happiness and peace. These works state this and intricately more.
