After taking a break from oil painting in 2018 and 2019 to look for a new and more satisfying direction, I have completed several paintings. I can safely say I have found a new way forward. Taking full advantage of the stay-at-home orders during March through May, 2020, I was able to complete two paintings and start a third. Things began getting busier in the summer of 2020, and time to paint in 2021 has been at a premium. But I still find time for the things I love the most.
