One of my paintings is going out into the world. UW Hospitals and Clinics recently purchased "Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire". I am proud to have one of my watercolors in their permanent collection. It fulfills an important artistic goal to have my work support and promote healing. It is always a bit sad to say farewell to a beloved painting, but I do so knowing a great many people will be able to "take refuge" in my art. With gratitude I send it forth.
The title is taken from a famous Jimi Hendrix song, and so it is fitting that I quote him today, a few days after the election that has brought great sadness to many people.
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace". -Jimi Hendrix
