Well, I'm finally here...... / by VH McKenzie

Welcome to The Night Shift. I think this is a rather auspicious date to begin, don't you?

Oddly enough, after being sidetracked by the demands of work and family from creating any art for years, I returned to drawing and painting in the summer of 2001, just a few short weeks before 9/11.

That was NOT an auspicious time to commit oneself to art.

But I've kept at it. My work has grown and changed and I finally feel ready to share it with a larger audience and to make a daily commitment to my work, and this is the place where I'll begin. Here's a watercolor I finished this summer, just a few short weeks ago, and I thought it a lovely, serene note upon which to begin. This painting is 14"x16" and, like all the images I'll be posting, is for sale.
