I had to see it to believe it. When I did, I learned a big lesson in scale. My biggest piece yet, Embrace, just an inch shorter then myself at 60″x36″, looked small over the mantel. I think I’m going to start painting larger!
Since November, I have been working with Nancy Noyse to install four of my paintings in the Yampa Valley Medical Center. The centerpiece is this big one, now on permanent display in the central waiting area. The other three are clustered together in the new Women’s Health Pavilion.
As with any artistic endeavor, it truly takes a village. My work would not be in the hospital if it weren’t for the unbelievable generosity of my collectors. Thank you so much to Shine and Russ Atha, Janet and Tim Borden, Karen and Joel Piassick, Terry Huffington, Carl Stiedtmann and Kathy Cline, and Bob Daniels and Carolann Alexander. It means so much to me that you have sponsored this art installation.
