Contemplation comes from a time of waiting, the agony of being apart from the people and places I love… waiting for the pandemic to pass so we can be together again. It keeps me sane, but it is always me, contemplating life from different perspectives and longing for the places I love. As I wait, I paint. As I paint, I dream. As I dream, I contemplate life for how beautiful it is and for how lucky I am for doing what I love.
