A Heart Felt Thank You To Everyone!

My partner Raymond and I relocated from Savannah, GA to Portland five years ago in escape of hurricane Maria.  We needed a change and Maria was just the right catalyst to propel us on a journey across the US.  Loading my old Chevy truck with what little we had left from previous hurricanes, we embarked.   We landed in Portland, OR without much fanfare except for the embrace of my daughter, Nina, who had moved here three years earlier.  

Many changes have happened since 2017.  We put together a working studio in the living room of our little apartment in St Johns with furniture from Portland's famous "free piles" on our neighborhood streets.  Our paintings were embraced by galleries.. Raymond's work at The Art Cellar Gallery in Banner Elk, NC and my work at Brumfield Gallery in Astoria, OR.  I had originally wanted to join Portland Open Studios Tour in 2020, having already been juried in but quickly realized that the pandemic was just beginning to take hold so Raymond and I weathered Covid in isolation and painted all the while.  

With gratitude I can say that having participated in the Portland Open Studios Tour, I have accomplished the beginnings of two goals.  My heart's desire in connecting with my neighborhood, art lovers, other like minded creatives and the greater Portland area!  Selling a few paintings was a much appreciated bonus that I was not expecting.  My second heart's desire was to raise money for World Central Kitchen with my Artist Card Sets.  If I can do nothing else, at least I can contribute to helping lift people up who need hope and wellbeing during a devastating crisis in their lives.
