Against All Odds

Nature seems so cruel these days.
Predation, bad weather, pesticides, disease, you name it.
Snakes eating baby birds and eggs, birds eating butterflies and insects.
It seems so vicious at times and somehow these species survive.
Against all odds.

Day Dreaming

 Dreamy blues and verdant greens.
New paintings in my shop!

Monday, May 23, 2016


It's been raining for weeks.
With only a few days of sun, I had to escape.
What better way than with paint?
I think it was Louise Borgeois that said,
"Art is a guaranty of sanity."
Well, perhaps she is right.

Bulbs and Bees

Spring bulbs are blooming and the bees are busy.
I love these warm and sunny spring days.
I'm inspired to draw some botanicals, which is perfect segue 
into a new project that I've been dreaming about.
Time to get out my dip pen and ink!

Shadow Portraits

I'm working on some shadow portraits. Modern silhouettes.
Making time to try new things. It's important.
I haven't abandoned my love of the natural world,
but there are many other things interest me as well.
I made a few silhouettes a few years back, you might even remember them!
 I'm revisiting the idea in a different way. These are slightly more surreal, 
and it's fun go off on a tangent and see where things lead.
 A collection of disparate things but it seems I like grouping paintings this way.
This one is a celestial creature.
Wearing Gucci, of course.
Snakes and pineapples. Totally strange.
 What's not to love?
