As much I love seeing my paintings in public spaces, there are times when I am privileged to view my work in its new and personal home. Occasionally I am honoured to receive a photo of a piece in its new space and it never ceases to amaze me. And to hear the stories of how my paintings touch someone else is the greatest gift.
Each time I work on a painting there are these stories that circle around in my mind, whether they are of a place or time or simply a symbol that I cannot release from my memory, and I am so glad when others connect with that, even if their stories are different from mine. It's hard to put into words how much this means to me.
And so, if anyone else out there would like to share a photo of my work in your space, I would be thrilled to receive it...and if you'd like to share how the work has touched you, I would be honoured to hear your story.
