Roses (Pandemic Purple), 24 x 18" Oil on linen


This is the short studio visit video I created during the pandemic for the Columbus Area Arts Council. I called it "Pandemic Purple" as I started painting my way out of those first few weeks of numbness by focusing on still lifes of lilacs that had just blossomed. Lilacs are one of my favorites since they always blossomed around my birthday and their scent brings many fond memories of my youth.
