Gate of New Beginnings

Any life worth living is a life enriched by frequent new beginnings. Recently, I entered into a new beginning of my own: the third decade of my life’s work as a published artist. As I think back on all the memories and inspirations the last twenty years have held, I am filled with eager anticipation of what the coming decade may bring.

Perhaps in your own life you’ve had cause to reflect on a season of new beginnings recently. For many, the past few years have brought change. Perhaps you have encountered in recent days a new love to savor, or a new career opportunity to embrace, or even a new life challenge to be faced. This is the inspiration behind my newest painting, Gate of New Beginnings. In this work, I have tried to create an ode to the ever buoyant human spirit and to the constantly curving pathway of life.

This work is special in another way: it is the first ever print created especially for our most loyal collectors – those who graciously take part in our exciting events each year. This “events only” painting is created as a form of thank you to the many who have celebrated our events in the past, and to the many new faces that we are sure to see at upcoming events. Enjoy this painting as a commemoration of not just your passion for art, but also of your passion for life!

As part of that celebration, I infused Gate of New Beginnings with an explosion of color – joyous dogwood blooms mingle with the fragrant floral blossoms that line the woodland path. Since spring truly is the season of new beginnings, my newest painting is also a joyous ode to spring.
