Porthole Series: Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise

Johnny Botts with porthole paintings FourSquared 2020   

During this time when galleries are closed and everyone is staying home, I am fortunate to be able to continue making art and participating in shows--it's just that everything has gone virtual. People are in the process of figuring out how things can operate.

Arc Gallery's FourSquared exhibition is one of the shows I'm in. It features 16 artists, each creating 16 small works. I am so happy to be part of it! I made small porthole paintings, and centered them on a mantra my husband and I have adopted this year: "Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, & Wise." We focus on one of these words each week to improve our outlook.

 I had a lot of fun with the paintings, and am happy with how they turned out. Each is 10" diameter, reverse painted on glass, and set in a circular metal frame.
