We are bombarded by frightening news, scary images, a pandemic, and political strife. If we allow it, we can spend most of our day anxious, fearful, and alienated. It is important to do what we can to not only fight for a better world, but to find the time to find enjoyment and beauty in our daily lives.
Drawing and painting have always brought me, both, intellectual challenge and contentment. I am drawn to colors and the geometry in images. Sometimes I don’t know what is drawing me into what I see. But it makes me happy. I hope that looking at some of my paintings brings some joy or nice memories of images past to you, too.
Shelley Tabakman’s would have had her artwork on display at Saratoga Visitors Center for the month of October.
