"Gone Fishin’ is a body of work reflecting on living in a pandemic for the last year and a half. Time at home has given me the appreciation for family, friends, travel and the freedom to go about life without restrictions. I want to live with the intent to rest and relax and appreciate the time I have to enjoy the things I most love in life. I hope these paintings bring you to a place of nostalgia and help you to remember what is important in your life." Shively depicts casual and simple scenes, things that perhaps were taken for granted during pre-pandemic times.
