Homecoming

I have painted birds, foxes, coyotes for years, watching them often through my studio window as the roam our woods. . I started this series when my kids left home. In depicting birds taking off and returning I realized this is what happens all through life; departures and returns, coming into this world, departing this world. Painting is often how I make sense of things; I can create an intimacy with subjects that otherwise feel distant and disconnected.
