    How to paint the feeling of Joy was my challenge and inspiration for this piece. Cursive writing is no longer taught in our public school systems and when youths see my handwriting they are fascinated. I wrote the word Joy with different sized brushed, my fingers, makers, inks and graphite while turning the canvas as I worked. In the end, I removed shapes and highlighted ones I liked. Joy is the result. It was a fun process.
