It’s been months since my website was rendered inoperative and I was unable to upload photos of new paintings. Thanks to Jamie’s persistence with the website host, I am now able to upload again. Please check out the gallery for photos of new paintings. Some have already sold but there are still more available for purchase. Commissions are welcome.
Although it was a cold dreary January afternoon, the day was brightened by the community’s support of the opening celebration for the newly expanded and renovated Cone Health Cancer Center on Elam Avenue. The agenda included a presentation, four hours of wonderful music, delicious food and tours of the facility making for a delightful event. Local artists were on hand to answer questions about the original artwork procured for the Center. I am honored to have been among those artists. Eight pieces of my art were underwritten by generous donors for installation in the Center. “Contemplation”, “Quiet Trust”, “Secret Thoughts” and “Quiescence” can be found at the First Floor Elevator while “Conscious Thoughts”, “Moments In Time”, “Moving Forward” and “Time Fragments” are hung in the Radiation Waiting Room on the Ground Floor. It is my sincere desire that through the art a life may be touched—bringing comfort and hope during a very difficult time.
About “Healing Art”
In 2011, the Healing Arts Committee—composed of survivors and Cancer Center staff—had the vision of using art throughout the Cone Health Cancer Center in Greensboro, NC. Thanks to the generosity of community members, this dream is now reality. The Center contains more than 70 works of art including paintings, sculpture and pottery by 27+ local artists, purchased with generous community donations and Cone Health contributions through the Healing Arts Program. The power of art to stimulate, to inspire and to heal can be felt through the Cone Health Cancer Center.
My art was accepted this week to appear on the new online gallery, Abstract Artist Gallery. It’s a pleasure to be a part of a site that specializes in abstract art. So many times abstract art gets lost in the mix of realism and impressionism. Abstract Artist Gallery not only features excellent abstracts but it also offers information on understanding abstract art.

My thanks and appreciation goes out to Jaison Cianelli for creating a great site especially for abstract artists.
I have three new paintings I have been trying to upload to my gallery but I am having technical issues with the site right now. I decided to upload them to the blog to give you a preview while the site is being worked on. As soon as the website issues are resolved, I will post them in the Gallery. I hope you enjoy them and do check back for descriptions and more info on each painting.

The second one is: Focus
