When I'm feeling overwhelmed by political strife at home and abroad, I seek escapism through my art. My new series of paintings takes me far, far away from all the craziness. With the dreaded HB2 here in NC, I have to pretend I'm somewhere else. Otherwise it's too embarrassing and sad. In my universe, no one would make a law out of hate for a whole group of people. I know that we will be able to defeat these evil forces on earth, that the powerful good energy will strike down all the negativity. In the meantime though, I'm hoping to create a peaceful, creative place for my mind to comprehend.
