Art of a Moment

“Moment Lost”

I haven’t made many abstracts. But this is one of my personal favorites, as it represents both what’s quickly lost, but also that which is remembered and longed for, thoughts that are renamed memories.

I’m so honored & proud to have this painting selected to be displayed on a digital billboard in Boston’s busy DownTown Crossing. If you’re in Boston from next weekend through the Summer, it’s another reason to look up🥰

I’m reminded that it’s the little things that move us. The smell of cooking or…. cologne. A long-forgotten aroma that yanks and tugs at our sensibilities, that snatches our attention away from the present, and cruelly places us squarely in the past, to remind us of what once was, as if we’re Scrooge before Christmas.

But there’s also safety in the moment, that is it can no longer harm me. It is but a memory and I can smile again. It is but a moment lost and I am a survivor of it.


So grateful to be a part of the OMB/BillboardHope art collaborative exhibition located on Washington and Boylston Streets in downtown Boston. Thank you 🙏💕
