Wishing You Color, Joy, and Peace

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

One of my early favorite artists died this past Wednesday at the age of 84:  the sculptor, John Chamberlain. I remember wandering the galleries in New York City when I was an art student at Cooper Union.  When I saw his huge multi-colored crushed car sculptures, it was a revelation.  I couldn't take my eyes off them.

Chamberlain helped me to see that abstract art was my calling.  That was a gift.

I'll be celebrating Hannukah and Christmas with family this year.  We're filling the house with light and strong smells of delicious food to get us through these short dark winter days. 

I often suffer depression during this holiday time, and think about all those for whom this time of year is hard, emotionally and physically.  Let's hold them in our hearts.
