I am so honored to be participating in the Healing through Art Exhibit at Peace Health St Josephs Medical Center beginning Feb 3 and running through May 19th. The Group Exhibit is titled Spring Reflections with many of my works carrying the theme of spring renewal and the cycle of life.

This painting, 48 x 60 inches, will be part of the exhibit at the hospital, along with 9 other works that I’ll post periodically over the course of the next few weeks. If you know of someone spending time at the hospital, encourage them to seek them out and read the words.
