What were some of your irreplaceable belongings that were lost along the way? What stories do they hold? These 4″ x 4″ paintings represent eight of mine and their stories. Ostensibly about loss, this series is really about cherishing. When we hold in remembrance what was precious to us, our hearts crack open just a little more, allowing the territory of our affections to expand. By remembering, we regain in part what was most important about the object that was lost along the way.
