The year of pandemic and Gallery One encouraged and allowed me to make art as part of my daily life. My 2021 Open Show entry is a tribute and homage to my dear friend and artist Merrily Tompkins. I finished the piece on the third anniversary of her death, and found a lot of joy in the planning and making of something that honors her humor, playfulness, and giant heart.
