I started oil painting about 13 years ago. I took many evening classes at Decordova museum (Lincoln MA). One of my favorite teachers was Jill Pottle (www.pottleart.com). I have had a long life with a lot of personal losses and growth. I am now in Q 3 of my life and the painting on the right derives from reflection on the clarity of my mind, most of the time, especially after my daily meditation.
