During the pandemic, I spent time each day outside looking up at the sky. Clouds appeared and then were gone. Sunlight moved, and light changed from moment to moment. Everything was transitory, and couldn’t be held on to. Afterwards, I often experienced a feeling of wellbeing, and I would begin a painting. Ephemera comes from the Greek word ephemeros. It means something that exists for a short period of time, or occurs only once. These paintings represent something fleeting and elusive.
