Blue Spirit is another painting from my series of "Being Present". In this series I'm interested in capturing the essence of what I'm feeling and experiencing in that specific moment in my life. The challenge of this body of work is that I never know what I'm going to create when I first walk into the studio, then as I start journaling what's on my mind, how i'm feeling and what's my mood the painting begins to reveal itself. You can never capture the feeling or essence of "present" later in life. It can only be in the "now." The main colors in this painting are Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor phalo blue, cobalt teal blue, burnt sienna, with energetic splashes of deep red. Its a highly energetic painting with an essence of calm at the same moment.
I live in ultra-vibrant Nashville, Tennessee, named the "IT City" by New York Times and Conde Nast. I hold a BSBA from Aquinas College and work in the world of Community-Based Organizations (CBO's) with a focus of creating collective impact that will improve public education and children's health by day....after that I escape into my world of art which becomes my refuge and ultimate space for feeding and nurturing my own soul.
