This piece is called Memories. It's mixed media collage portrait on canvas created for Ten Women Gallery Venice. I get the window at the gallery in July and I wanted to create a few new pieces to put in it. This is the first of 3 that I finished for that purpose. Turning 65 next year and still in touch with many of my childhood friends we talk a lot about the way it used to be and how fortunate we are to have been part of a wonderful era where it was much safer and simpler. Being born and raised in New York was a magical time where you knew everyone on your block and everyone looked out for each other. Life is so different now and it will grow more and more detached as the years pass. My "Memories" piece is my looking back and holding on to those experiences that will always make me proud and grateful to have been part of a generation when life was much more naive and trusting and it was a great to be an American.
I'm so grateful to be able to share my art with others. I'm mixed media and love doing lots of different mediums. My main stay is calligraphy of course and most of my art has words in them, hence "The Word is ART". Hope you like what you see and come back often.
Have a blessed day. Renee
