My abstract painting “Muted Peach” was accepted and shown at OMA’s juried first “Platform” event on March 31, 2023. Muted Peach is a piece from my series of abstract paintings called “Line & Color“. Acceptance of the piece helped bolster my commitment to making more art and gave justification for already produced art, especially for the accepted piece. Having it shown in public, in the OMA, gave me more awareness of what it is to be an artist in the public space. Which I find very complicated. Lots to think about. The event was a marked positive milestone in my art journey. Yeehaa!
