New Beginnings

Erik ReeL painting
Erik ReeL, Opus 1699, Beginning, acrylic on paper

I did this  painting, titled Beginning New Time, right after meeting Rhonda Hill, my wonderful wife.  We met in a gallery one afternoon, talked for a bit, then went our ways after arranging to meet later early that evening at a friend’s bar for a light dinner.

Neither of us can remember what was said exactly in that first conversation, but we were both intrigued.  Proof, once again, that it is the feeling and character that matters, not the exact words.   It was the beginning of the most remarkable relationship of my life; a relationship that has more than fulfilled all the promise of those first magic moments.
