2015 MSAA Art Showcase Entrants
Margie Kopaczewski – Philadelphia, PA
Change in life is inevitable however, we create timestamps along the way…painting is my time stamp. It is the moment that I become intentionally lost in my thoughts and inspiration. I create my vision and stamp onto a canvas, a paper, or a piece of material to keep forever. Although time will change most everything this is the stamp that reminds me where I was at that moment, my external memory. With MS memory is a gift..without MS ….memory is still a gift. Whether the moment in time was the best of your life or a period where you weren’t sure you could make it through. Art is my visual memory where I can reflect on a time with fondness or be triumphant as I was strong enough to make it through. Like a photograph my painting is captured for life.
Art has allowed me to express myself in a way that words could or would never allow me.
I choose to use water paint as my artistic medium, I am comforted by the warmth of the colors and feel it captures my vision exactly.
