"Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire" Mary Kay Neumann, Watercolor 30x22, UW Hospitals and Clinics

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
