"Following Grandma's advice" / by Michele

This series is getting pretty intense. Lately, I’ve been focusing on exploring emotions we all experience at one time or another.

Most of these paintings aren’t out for show, it’s not like I can hang them on my walls for when folks come a visitin’ (they might get the wrong impression -> “Welcome to the house of pain, Y’all!”).

They are in my studio (some in a closet, some on the floor) for now.

People have remarked, “Your landscapes are so beautiful, why don’t you paint more of those”? But that is not where I am.

I think my grandmother put it best when she said, “Honey, why don’t you just paint your feelings -> throw it on canvas and get them out of you … you’ll feel better”.

Thank you, Booma. In a nutshell, that is exactly what I am trying to do.
