Events and Exibitions
It has been a busy year so far! I have been doing some volunteer work with the Watercolor Society of Oregon, for example. Plus, I took artist Sarah F. Burns‘ “Anatomy for Artists” drawing class. The class was intense, challenge and wonderful; a good learning experience. But, no matter how busy I get, I keep […]

Oddly enough, I had to […]
Continuity, as in an ongoing flow of work. Its all part of a bigger picture! Day 30! Closing or Opening? Greetings! With today’s painting I arrive at the end of the #30paintingsin30days challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta Studios. And, yet, it feels more like an opening rather than a closing of my work. Open To […]
