Happy Happy

So it’s another year and, other than having to remember to write it on checks, it in many ways felt like just another day. Until I went to a party in the afternoon and somehow, the feeling of celebration changed the way I saw the new year’s date on the calendar.

Yes, a lot is different. The world feels like a more fragile place in many ways and yet we still have our hopes and dreams. There were many people at the party whom I hadn’t seen in a long time. I was asked at least five times if I was still painting. I refrained from my usual “does a bear sh*t in the woods” and just said “yes, definitely.” But I do wonder what would ever make me stop.


About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
