I've added a new page to this site, a "gallery"showing a selection of paintings from this past year. Altogether, there are over 30 Elegies and Releases. Not only was it important to honor Wayne's memory in this way, these were also the only paintings I could have made while grieving. The series has taken me into some new territory of emotional expression. Without any deliberation on my part, they reflect the range of my feelings and provide images of spiritual movement and change. As you will see if you click on the "Elegy" page button (above) I have also in some cases dropped the repetitive elements that have been mainstays for several years.
