2020. Oil on Canvas. 36” x 22”.

Traveling in New Mexico I felt a remarkable connection to this powerful place. For some reason I had a great desire to tell my mother about it as if she had been there when I knew she hadn’t. She passed the following winter without me telling her. In painting this piece, I couldn’t get her off my mind. The yellow rose is for her. I feel her connection deeply. Art connects us all.
