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.
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.

Here’s the newest addition. During my quiet time in the pre-dawn hours in early February 2011, I saw a painting in my mind. The title “Where Love Begins” formed in my thoughts. I sat thinking about what I was “seeing” and how it fit in with the title when a poem started spilling out on my notepad. “Where Love Begins” was conceived. Later that day I began applying the beginning textures to a canvas. Day after day, layer upon layer it progressed until I knew it had finally reached its destination.
Out of darkness
Light begins to emerge
Love is born
A new beginning
A second chance
Love takes root
Darkness fades into nothingness
Love absorbs its surroundings
Leaving only shadows of the past
