about the painting…
We spent the first week of July visiting my family after a long COVID separation. For the first time, my son and husband experienced lightning bugs, something this Ohio-raised gal has missed since moving to Washington. Sharing that magical part of my childhood with my boys meant so much to me.
I was already working on a daytime version of and ice cream (my five year old’s favorite “food”) but this nightime version was growing in my mind. The concept for the painting began to evolve as I watched them chase flashes around in the dusk and the result is a combination of midwestern summer, childhood magic and love.
