I recently spent a wonderful week in Orleans, Cape Cod and was so inspired by the natural beauty of the National Seashore.  This was my first vacation without my children in 19 years ! I have been reflecting on the many changes in my life recently – embracing the concept of “Holding on” to love, memories, respect, principles and boundaries and “Letting Go” of outcomes and attitudes which hold us back from becoming our personal best, becoming an empty nester and relishing the new role of Grandmother.  My paintings show the energy and beauty of the sea… as it ebbs and flows….as it delivers, cleanses, enriches,  and takes away…. and reminds me how each day of our lives are different, each with their own degree sadness and happiness and how we must learn to give and take…. some days are peaceful… the gentle sea laps gracefully at the shoreline… some days it roars…crashing cruelly, clawing away the foundations of so many….  it is a circle… a circle we must learn to accept with grace and understanding of the values and treasures to be found in both stormy and calm waters….
