Painting was the glue that held me together in 2020. I was able to maintain my practice and put brush to canvas every single week with Roofless Painters. I learned something from every single stroke. Julio Pansiello is the true alchemist that kept art alive as we responded to issues and veered away from them as needed. Every Friday through a webinar and a topic with shared inspiration, a google photo folder and encouragement, art history and a small Easel set up in the corner of my living room (my daughter had to come home from school so my studio became her bedroom) a small group of artists came together for two hours to stop time and capture a moment.
