A WORLD AWAY
"With each painting I create, I strive to achieve a feeling of happiness. In this piece, the happiness comes from the vibrant colors and undulating shapes that appear to play across the surface. It is an altered reality based on the idea of a rolling landscape, interspersed with abstract expressionism. This painting, created with oil paint on a burlap surface, evokes the joy and inspiration the Friends Program provides to all those involved."
