My very first commission in the summer of 2015, has reared some new life of viewers as the owners moved and shared their favorite art piece in their home. Exciting to get some new work from it!

Nature Provides
I am astounded by the beauty, joy and wonder of nature. It fills me with heartfelt pleasures to breathe in the abundance of it all! It seems to be a source of on going inspiration for me to paint. The creations surprise and excite me. They explore the mindful curious incidents that inhabit my daily lifestyle.
Come to Cafe Atlantique 33 River Street, Milford, CT the month of February to see some of these works.

There For Each Other
Listening
Sharing and caring
Encouraging
Feeling safe
A bonded family
That expresses love
Nothing is off limits
No filters are necessary
The safety and privacy is truly apparent
Through whole body attention
With hugs full of light felt blessings of grace and wonderment!

Artists Statement
Wisps of Air

While creating this eclectic, colorful series, I was struck by my connection to my breath. As I became more aware and truly focused, I felt each space within my being vibrate. I stopped to reflect, with baroque music softly playing in the background, I sat and placed my fingertips on my belly, abdomen, and then on my chest. I was able to move the breath up and down my spine. The magical flow of the energetic breath, brought tears to my eyes. It was as if it was speaking to me. I picked up the brush and throbbing light- filled healing wisps of paint began appearing on the canvas. Colors were floating across the panels. Excitement of the fun and wonderment of time passing before my eyes, amazed me. The wind was whipping outside.The wind/air seem to be speaksing to me here, living on a tidal river. The sounds were mirroring my paint strokes. Many changes occurred with layers upon layers of fabric, paint and repurposed objects tht called to me placed on the canvas. I continued to be showered with the energetic air/wind as I worked with the mixed media. I felt euphoric joy and pleasures abound . I owe natures elements for my artistic frolic merriment . I say, "thank you to the air and beyond", betsy ratner

I am using a HP Chromebook and hopefully will be able to keep accessing my cell to send to the cloud my almost daily paintings!
