There is actually a book titled Art and Fear. I am nervous about the upcoming show, so I turn to love and beauty to calm me. When I saw the face of Fighter A235 I loved his serene expression and knew I would have to paint his portrait. I feel calmer just looking at him.
My cat. When I finish this painting, I will hopefully have time to submit it to the Savor exhibit in New Hope, PA. That exhibit will correspond with the solo show of fighters that begins August 10th at the Quiet Life gallery in Lambertville, NJ. Hope some people might be able to get to see that.
