...and more to come.  These are a few things that I have been working on since my last newsletter. If you do not receive that newsletter contact me and I will get you on the list. These works that you see above are all painted on location. I took an amazing workshop in North Carolina with renowned painter Marc Dalessio. We spent a week on a beautiful property run by the most gracious and generous host Carmen Gordon. The official name of the place is Oak Hollows Studio. I am keeping the momentum going by painting locally. Keep an eye on this blog as I will keep posting, better yet find me on Instagram or Facebook where I keep the most up to date news on my work. Thank you.

That’s how it was for me right after my first solo show in 2005: a sold out show, some local write ups, attention, more interest in my work. Thi…

Oasis in the night

There it is, like a, well, an Oasis in the night. Poor planning, too much bravado or faith in the wrong way, or just not being aware can have you close to empty. Or maybe the road is clear, the plan is good it is just that you are cutting it close. At the 11th hour there it is, shining bright, the much needed refueling. I know many of you know what I mean. I myself know it all too well these days. My choices in life, as do yours(?) can seem difficult and the outcomes uncertain. I guess this personal post is as much motivational in nature for myself. I know these refueling stations of life exist. It may seem scary there in the dark. All we can do is to keep on driving. It will show up. It must. It has. This drawing is a reminder.
