Here is my most recent painting. I so enjoyed the creation of this biophilic and expressive work. I continue to explore the automatistic, spontaneous pulse of the narrative that unfolds when I paint or draw each element. And as well, I seek to combine the spontaneous gestures with my personal reflections on nature and life at large. You can also see this work at my website.
The Verse Of Flora’s Gate, watercolor, ink and pastel, 14 5/8″ x 11 1/4″.
I’ve joined a group of Arizona artists who meet monthly. We enjoy discussing technique and latest community arts news, planning painting/drawing meetups and collaborate on exhibits. 12 of us will now be presenting our work in The Artery, a gallery run by a local artist collective, through a variety of group and solo shows. For February, we’ve chosen a love-themed group exhibition. Join us this first Friday!

I will be exhibiting Diviners, a watercolor, ink and pastel painting, Say That Again, an ink drawing and giclée limited edition prints.
I have received an invitation to a surrealism group show, Figure So Surreal, in May. This will be a large gathering of surrealists — some whose work I’ve followed for many years. “A journey into the minds of over 3 dozen talented artists as they dance with images of a surrealist world. From Arizona and beyond!”, writes Travis Fields, curator. I’m very excited to be a part. You can visit Facebook to RSVP or learn more. I’ll have more details as the date gets closer.
Here is my latest painting. The process of it almost haunted me as I swam from color to color, through tawny swirls of soil and rosy blossoms, then finally arrived at a greener palette. It seemed to me to be reflective of an innate tendency to draw toward nature, away from man made material, to be humbled and alive in a force that is greater than us, yet every bit a part of who we are. I feel we all need to go there, lost into nature places, to remember what we cannot say with words. I still feel a lot of mystery about this work. I wonder if some day I might meet someone who knows the rest of the story.
When He Himself Is Covered Green, 2016, watercolor, ink and pastel, 12 3/16″ x 15 15/16″.
In 2010 I painted The Gift. I am thrilled that this magical painting will be included and for sale in Herberger Theater Art Gallery’s upcoming group exhibition, Home for the Holidays. This show will be located at their Arizona Center gallery at 455 N. Third Street, Suite 1200 in Phoenix, AZ, opening reception November 18th, 6-8pm. The show runs from November 18th – January 16th.
Below is a work in progress.
I’ll leave you with a little drawing. Feel all there is with and within the one you love, while you have the time.
I’ll Stay Awake to See Your Colors
This is my newest painting. Let Them Fall and Rise as Garnets, 2015, watercolor, ink and pastel, 14″ x 12″.
Two paintings, Beloved and The Gift, have been selected for exhibition at Arizona Opera located at 1636 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ. You will be able to view them in the lobby from March 16th – June 5th. This is a wonderful venue featuring some of Arizona’s greatest vocal talents. I’m thrilled!

I had a wonderful time exhibiting new paintings and drawings at “First Friday at The Pike” in Flagstaff, Arizona in February and March. I met the talented Ivan Bronston who is a sculptor, painter and graffiti artist. Helen Padilla also showed some new drawings – a rare and exciting treat. Matthew Koscica, an urban artist, and Ivan Bronston created “The Wall of Verona”, a hanging tarp canvas emblazoned with caricatures and romantic verses. Visitors were encouraged to add their own valentine interpretations in pictures and words. I really enjoyed meeting everyone who came out and receiving hugs from old friends. I’m very thankful to Jeff and Kari Maurer, the owners of The Pike, for inviting me to exhibit. My show will be hanging till March 14th.
