HannahHannahWatercolor on cradled Aquabord (24x36x1.5)2018The Seasons of Life Series explores loss and the passing of time.I use masking medium and watercolor to illustrate the seasons of life. I allow the paint to flow across the dried masking medium, watching as the colors mingle throughout the piece. I want to illustrate how moments of life march into seasons. Events, like staccato notes, announce a new era. There is beauty in the chaos and glimmers of hope amidst sadness. Our lives have a song to play out. The high notes and low notes form the melody, as the seasons of life keep time.Hannah drew out her own timeline. She defined what each color means in her life and where the colors fall. In this abstract portrait, I attempted to capture Hannah’s timeline. This is her story to tell, I just merely transcribed it with paint and gold leaf.

I allow the paint to flow across the dried masking medium, watching as the colors mingle throughout the piece. I want to illustrate how moments of life march into seasons.

The high notes and low notes form the melody, as the seasons of life keep time.I painted this painting after a difficult code. As a pediatric ER nurse, i witness lives in flux. The ebb and flow of energy, health, and life. There are time that I come home in the middle of the night wrestling with the trauma of the shift. I painted Seasons in Flux in order to sit with my questions and my anger.
