Creation Myth

Creation Myth, the imaginative expression of the beginning of things, whether by the will and act of a transcendent being or by emanation from some ultimate source


This piece is reminiscent of a painting I gave Rod for his fist birthday after Margaux was born... I refer to it as the Creation Myth of Margaux. This has the same amorphous, oceanic potential, that looks to me, like the beginnings of some small universe.

Spring Green

These colors remind me of Spring... its a very hopeful green.

I think they might be ships

I try to keep my paintings somewhat ambiguous, and it's always interesting to hear the things that people see in them. I don't know what you'll see, but I think they might be ships.....

Old Wall, New Work

I'm surprised to find that my these intensely saturated pieces look so at home on this quiet textured wall.  #CONTRAST 
I guess I have always liked the look of old and new together...

(photographed with some snazzy pieces from The Curious Orange Store)



Im trying to find places to take pictures of my work in my new pad, and it's a leeetle tricky.  Fortunately I found this snazzy bookcase above M's bed that has nice light.  UNfortunately, it's the only spot I have, sooooo you might be seeing a lot of bookcase.

the 2 blues have just been recently reframed and I'm very pleased with the result.

This is a new piece I just finished today... the first one made in our new house. 
I don't yet have a studio to take snazzy photos in, so I'm working with what's here.

The Women's Initiative

This year, the Women's Initiative had a big group of regional artists donate work, and 
I'm happy to say the auction brought $23,000.00 to help women in need.
Good job ladies! 

This is the piece I donated.  (20 x 20" ink on Yupo paper) I think it found a good home.
