A Piece of Quiet – Artist Insights from Liz Hoag

“Though sometimes it’s hard to focus on complex tasks when thoughts of what’s going on outside these walls swirl in my head, I have managed to quietly create,” shares Hoag. “The creamy feel of paint on a brush and the unexpected success of an even a tiny section of a painting that feels just perfect makes my days.”

Artists Insights – Words from Liz Hoag

They are an integral part of the beauty.  You take them in without thinking about them.
