Our neighborhood is filled with crabapple trees and forsythia bushes. For one week each spring, they burst out into colors that are bright, energetic and full of life. But they last just a short time, quickly wilting, and by the end of the week, the fallen petals litter the ground beneath the trees. So while I have the chance I get to work, and try to coax the spring to last a little longer.
My solo show last month, part of the New Jersey Emerging Artists Series, was a great success. I thank everyone at the Monmouth Museum for helping make it happen.
