About The Artwork

March and April were frightening this year. Where every other March and April merely brought, at worst, heavy rains - 2020 brought the pandemic. With the ambulances going around the clock, most days found me inside, hugging a cat (since I was keeping my two and my kid's cat and her roommates' 2 cats - there were five from which to choose). Every once in a blue moon, I put on a mask, tie up my hair, tighten my mask, put my phone inside a plastic bag (to keep it coronavirus free), re-tighten my mask, fill up a backpack with a sketchbook, charcoal and some oil pastels, take my mask off to put a cap on, then put the mask on again, and tighten it again. Every step I can take to prevent Covid goes into my outside preparations (up to and including having only outdoor shoes and indoor shoes - and dropping my backpack outside my door once I return). Once the pandemic prevention measures are finished, I head to a park. This week I visited the Lilac Garden in Central Park (it's on the edge of the Sheep Meadow - 69th street area, midway). The tulips were popping up and dancing in the breeze as if all was right with the world. A welcome sight during such a tragic time. And from my visit came this painting. My process: My go-to paint brands are predominately Golden and Liquitex. Sometimes Utrecht, Blick and Sennelier creep in there, too. The brushes used are whatever is hanging around not covered in paint. I also use a lot of cotton cloths to blend the paint around. Oh, yes, and my trusty spatula knife. Almost all of my paintings are finished off with my own painting-framing technique, which allows the paintings to be hung without frames. The process is organic, with me putting a lot of Payne's gray in the palm of my hands, and then palming the color around the sides of the painting - bleeding over the edge a bit - so the sides of the painting are black. Payne's gray was the first paint I used to do this, and it's sort of a good luck thing. I like to think that the luck is passed onto whomever is looking at the paintings. The buyers who have decided to have my work frame, tend to use floating frames. I'm a published novelist. I've written 4 novels (translated into 14 languages). But I love painting more. My novels were deemed funny and people wrote that my stories brought them great pleasure and happiness. I hope that my paintings will do the same. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Sarah
