First of The Year!

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are opposite forces that form a whole. Everything contains both yin and yang in a balance that is always changing.

The painting on the right, Trees at Dusk 1, was one of two canvases that I painted a while back. Ever since Trees at Dusk 2 sold this painting has seemed unbalanced. I ended my 2010 and started off 2011 in the studio working on a new partner for the painting.

Here's to a balanced life in 2011! Happy New Year!


  1. Fabulous Cheryl!

A heartfelt thanks from une femme d'un certain âge!
