Ode to Richmond alludes to the re-emergence of the arts in Richmond. The poem brought to mind the artistic Renaissance in Paris in the 20s and 30s. I opted to depict the Muse of Art encircling Richmond's old buildings along the James River as a tribute to Mr. Burnems' descriptive poetry.

 

Artist's Statement:

As a retired college administrator who spent 40 years living in numbers and student angst, I finally found my happy place in the world of Art. Art gives me permission to follow my distractions and pursue the elusive shiny objects that jump around in my mind. I started out using oils, attempted watercolors and pencils, and finally found my home in the land of acrylics. Creating large art is not my comfort zone; and I am happiest when working on smaller pieces, where I can crawl inside the painting. My subject matter, like my mind, varies from day to day. I have a tendency to explore my dark side when I paint, and my current challenge is bringing more joy onto the canvas. For me, Art is cathartic. It is music to my soul and allows that crazy, creative person inside to come out and play.
