"With hope in mind, I scattered paint upon some bubble wrap, plopped the canvas down on top of it, squished it around a bit, pulled it up and voila! And as soon as I saw this quote by Emily Dickinson, I knew it was… the thing with feathers. 'Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.'"

Artist Statement: "I remember hearing about Grandma Moses as a young adult and thinking how cool would that be to start something new at age 78— and here I am now, a year older than Anna Mary Moses was when she began painting and I’ve just discovered the Art of Acrylic Pouring. Not that my collection of throwing paint on things will ever appear in museums but it sure has been fun and made this COVID quarantine go by fast."
