My husband Richard and I were honored to be included among the artists selected to create work for INGLORIOUS ARIZONA. In this exciting project, stories about the grittier side of Arizona’s past were assigned to a selection of local artists. Once received, the artists would have about a month to create art inspired by their particular story.
One month may seem like a lot of time..
but not for me.
I am a slow, meticulous painter..
blissfully lingering over my work with tiny brushes.
So, when I submitted my work for consideration
I knew that if I were selected
I would pretty much have to paint non-stop for 30 days.
Did I hesitate?
And during the magnificent painting frenzy that followed
I pushed the limits of my endurance
to the breaking point…
only to discover
that I did not break.
Such is life.
