During her second bout with cancer, Terry banished her first-time chemo wig and sported a variety of adorable hats. Eventually she came to the conclusion that she didn’t care to hide her nearly bald head anymore. At the gentle urging of her friends in art class, Terry removed her cap and as a great favor […]

“Julian” Oil on Canvas 30″ x 40″ It’s been quite a while since I’ve dabbled in the world of WordPress. So, all week long I’ll be posting a backlog of paintings beginning with this one.

Oil on Linen 24″x 34″ A new portrait. Sorry, all. I’ve been spending more time painting, and less time blogging. I’ve been and will be, following you and enjoying your blogs in bursts.

One of several paintings haunting me. I’m holding myself to higher standards lately, hanging onto nearly finished pieces, putting them aside for weeks, seeing them anew and correcting. Only after many improvements, am I letting them go. There are a couple more waiting to be released…soon…maybe..;)
While struggling with the dark “Cloaked” series, I felt compelled to search for a little light. This is one of two recent pieces expressing that urge to find the light. Tomorrow, another light seeking painting.
