"I studied Flamenco guitar, and this piece is an ode to that period in my life. I loved music, playing guitar, and learning Flamenco guitar from a world-renowned instructor. In 2009 or so, my hands could no longer take playing this very "handsy" type of guitar. Fingers in this genre need to be their own acrobats. This piece symbolizes my deep love for Flamenco guitar but my inability to continue playing and learning because of MS. It was one of the big transitions in my life. The art can be viewed as a beginning and an end. The beginning symbolizes abstract guitar-like shapes coming together to make an instrument. The end could be viewed as the opposite, with guitar-like shapes still discernable but becoming more abstract as they move away from each other. I am so thankful that although my musical side is silent these days, my visual art side (something impossible to imagine before 2017) is alive and creating melodies in different ways."
