This image is from our last Beerhorst Family Art show and includes work here from both Brenda and myself. It has been an important part of our relationship over the years being able to make art work and share that with each other. Artists need a lot of support because it can become very difficult to continue in your artistic path when you are going through hard times of just feeling dry and empty. So to have a partner right there in the day in and day out has been a life saver.
I have always felt that Brenda helped me into the world of color. She has an very sophisticated natural ability to put colors together that continues to amaze me. The series of paintings she began this winter has been some of the best work I have seen her do so far. I look forward to the show she will be doing at the Green Well in East Hills next month. Brenda also contributed three of her recent paintings into the Trip The Light dance performance at the Wealthy Theater this month. An image of the three paintings was projected behind the dancer as a beautiful backdrop of color and pattern which created a very rich context for her performance, taking it into a very potent place.
