The Escape of Art
I am usually am an upbeat, happy person, even seeing the good in bad situations. 2020 and 2021 brought me to a place many of us found ourselves. A place of anxiety, distrust, unable to believe what was right before our eyes, search for truth, depression, and loneliness. I often found my escape in art and created a painting series title, "Escape". The pieces in this series will soon be added to my website at pjfineart.square.site. But one of my favorite pieces painted during this time was not part of the series but an acrylic piece entitled, "2021 We Lost Our Marbles" I only participated in one art show this year and this piece sold at the show; so I guess the feeling that inspired the painting may have been universal!
