I have made some big moves in my life lately, I moved from my beloved home in San Francisco, leaving my friends that are nearly as close as family behind. I also sold most of my paintings at dirt cheap prices to good friends during a fund raiser for myself to get me here to Arizona. Being from Arizona, there is a sense of returning home but after 12 years in San Francisco It was a difficult move to make. I'm coming home to many challenges, strained family relations, hence the above painting, an ailing grandmother who may pass away within days of my arrival, money, apartment, etc etc..But I am up for the challenges, I am determined to turn everything into lemonade, and roll with the punches as far as challenges I cannot control. I look forward to U of A, healing relationships, discovering the little art scenes out here and hiking in the beautiful desert landscapes, and making myself an even better stronger, kinder and even more driven person, I accept the obstacles ahead and await their resolution. All the positive feeling sent to my Grandmother Gerty would be appreciated. Love and positivity to all.
