It is wonderful to be included in this exhibition and to have our judge Liz Haywood-Sullivan recognize my painting and giving it such a place of honor is such a great feeling. I am grateful.

It occurs to me that I was very moved by the beauty of the snow and winter despite the bitter cold. And oddly it was the figures in the snow that captivated me the most. I say this because I don't usually feel drawn to putting people in my paintings. But I was fascinated by the movement of people in the snow. I painted a series of these winter scenes with figures and most of them have sold. So I learned that others enjoyed them as well. Perhaps my passion came through.
That is what it is all about. Finding a subject that speaks to you....something that you just can't wait to paint. I painted these winter scenes with joy and it is so wonderful to know that the paintings speak to others. I'll have to see where this leads me.
