“Onward” 6×6, oil on canvas 


What advice would you give 2020 graduates?

I created this little painting for one. The slightly lavender background is a nod to her going to LSU in the fall.

These are strange times, and I’m not sure there’s anything we could say to make any difference at all. But if I could? I think these are some things I’d want to pass on

1. It’s okay to be upset about things you care about.

2. You are resilient

3. Feel your feelings– neither obsess over them nor surpress them. Ride them like a wave. They aren’t good or bad. They just are.

4. You are loved
