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.
