Hand paintings to celebrate the New Year

Thank you to everyone who has made 2019 a wonderful year full of good friendships and milestones. I wish you all a prosperous and happy 2020. To celebrate the New Year I am releasing three new hand paintings. I found myself lately longing for the delicacy of these intimate little images and have several new hand compositions planned for 2020. Paintings shown below are now available at the Meyer Gallery in Santa Fe.

Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,
And like enough thou knowst thy estimate.
The Charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;
My bonds in thee are all determinate.
For how do I hold thee but by thy granting,
And for that riches where is my deserving?
The cause of this fair gift in me is wanting,
And so my patent back again is swerving.
Thy self thou gav’st, thy own worth then not knowing,
Or me, to whom thou gav’st it, else mistaking,
So thy great gift, upon misprision growing,
Comes home again, on better judgement making.
Thus have I had thee as a dream doth flatter:
In sleep a king, but waking no such matter.

~ Sonnet 87 by William Shakespeare
