Do Or Die Artwork

 

Kim Porio

Lavender Fields


After I had been painting for about 10 years, I lost the only painting teacher I had ever known. Arlene Skutch, local Westport artist and beloved teacher, had taught me everything I knew about painting. When she passed away, I honestly felt that I couldn’t paint without her guidance.


It was a few months after her passing that I finally picked up my brushes again. I had to rely on my own instincts, the techniques she had taught me and my personal desire to continue to create to push me forward. I was scared and intimidated. I truly felt I wasn’t prepared to paint on my own. But, from the first day I started to paint again, I heard her voice in my head and felt a new-found freedom to pursue my art. Painting is still one of the great joys of my life.
