The Year 2020
Are there any words left to describe 2020? Is there anyone who isn’t happy to see it head out the door?
2020 brought pain, loss, and struggle to so many this year. A change of the calendar isn’t ending that yet, though there is light at the end of the tunnel, finally.
I have a lot to be grateful for. COVID-free (knock on wood), Max is happy and healthy, I have my home, a day job to pay the bills (mostly), and my art. While I lost some loved ones (COVID and other reasons), most friends and family stayed healthy. I have blessings to count.
On the art-side, I believe I made some of my best work. New favorites, new techniques, experience gained. As an artist, one of the most important things I can do is grow. I did that some this year.
I’ve already got several new pieces in the works for 2021. I have my main focus for 2021 – works for a solo show. I expect the work to take much of the new year, and am looking at 2022 for my first solo show. Details are a ways away, but I’ll let you know as they develop.
A sincere thank you to my collectors; the new ones gained this year, and my returning ones. Art is never complete until it connects with a viewer and they take it home. Thank you for being a part of my art. You make my dream succeed.
