We were talking tonight in class about how to unify people
and make them feel part of the community when they come
from all over the world. In my art, I have tried to create small
communities to link people and places from different geographic
This painting Water Image 3 is part of a series,
joining the oceans, and people that loved specific ocean places
together by bands representing the beaches at the edge of the ocean.
This is one of my favourites, a young woman from India I met
through a class, and had come to work for a family here as a nanny.
She was studying Pre-health with the hope of one day becoming a nurse,
or a doctor. She moved several times, and I lost touch with her. I hope
she achieved her dreams. I'm forever grateful to her for posing for me.
The painting travelled to New York, and hangs in my studio at the moment.
Have a loving your life day
