The Feral Joy Collection



The Feral Joy Collection is a celebration of the jubilant return of hope and joy. These are paintings of lively forms and vibrant hues cavorting playfully in an invitation to indulge in optimism.

Each painting is dance of colors and shapes that express happiness or resilience. I have chosen a palette reminiscent of a favorite childhood candy shop stocked with candy buttons, sweet and sour hearts, candied almonds and licorice.

The bold colors of jelly beans and the bright lollipop greens and oranges express a lighthearted, hopeful challenge to the dark grays and black. Likewise, jaunty and sometimes clumsy shapes twist and cha-cha across the canvas, dancing against the outside worlds avalanche of negativity.
