“On the Dot,” 6” x 6” acrylic on wood panel with 1-5/8” deep sides. Today’s installment in my #100daysofencouragement project is dedicated to @t.s.harris — a California painter with whom I feel great affinity. I didn’t discover her work until earlier this year, and I was delighted to find an artist “soul sister.” We share a fascination with mid-century women and vintage fashions, compositions with only hints of faces, and the sense of mystery, longing, and nostalgia that these images evoke. (Of course her paintings are large-scale, while mine are #smallart — but still...it’s fun to find shared sympathies with an artist I’ve never met!) If you don’t know her work, please check out her IG feed and website and share some encouragement. Because you know it is a blessing to be able to #encourageartists #supportlivingartists #sharethelove #bepartofthesolution #practicegratitude — right?!?
