About The Artwork

One time I was on a plane, and as we were flying over thunder clouds the pilot came over the speaker and told us to look out the side of the aircraft. There, we saw a rainbow that was a full circle, not a half circle like we're used to seeing, but a complete circle. So, when I got home I decided to paint that scene, of course, I am a painter and can add my own little nicks and knacks, and that's what I did. I added three figures to make them look as they are streaking through the sky leaving a rainbow as their trail through the cloud patterns. If you know my work, you might think there are things hiding in the clouds, and who knows, you may very well be right, for that is something I love doing, hiding things in my painted clouds. Completed in 2008, it is one of my most recent pictures, seeing as I am now 97 years of age, and have tremors and vision impairment, I am doing less and less art over time. This may very well be one of my last highly detailed works I do in my life.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
