Special Letters to Me
I've always loved the alphabet. In grade school I'd doodle all over my folders & desk. In high school I had an eye chart in my locker because I thought it was so pretty & it made me smile in between academic classes that didn't. In art school I spent a semester exploring each letter. I love the up & down motion of each letter, how it all looks together, or sequenced is a new way. I think of it as a dance you do with your hand. Today I continue to incorporate it into a lot of my work. I quickly painted this over the weekend circling the letter of each member in my family. (Antonio, Jill, Luca) It pleases me when something so simple & quick turns out to be more powerful than something I spend hours or days on. I think my plan is to nestle this in our wall of photos at home.
