Summer is filled with events again for me. I will have a small show of new and recent paintings, teach a workshop and I’ve just completed a 4th digital book.

The book is a short one about the spiritual side of painting and how everything in one’s life has an effect on one’s paintings. It suggests ways we can support making better art.

I have completed several new paintings since the beginning of the year. A few are painted on Terra Skin paper, which is a very smooth surface, much like Yupo. I like what it produces and will probably keep using it at times.

These 2 paintings of water lilies were lots of fun to paint, but in very different ways. Both images are painted from photos I took at the local wildlife marsh near here.

This first painting is on Terra skin, which makes textures easily and allows some lifting.

The second is a full sheet painting done on 300LB. Lanaquarelle cold pressed paper. It lent itself to lovely washes and I was able to lift fairly easily.

NEWS: SUMMER 2016

Discover-yo-119NEW BOOK
This May I completed a 4th digital book, “Discover Your Inner Inspiration”. This 48 page book is about preparing yourself to paint. The artistic process and the act of creating artwork are affected by who we are, our environment and lifestyle. It includes suggestions for readiness for painting; in the perfect atmosphere, with a perfect mind set and spiritual readiness to create. The text is supported by numerous quotations by famous writers, sages and artists to emphasize the connection between spirit and creativity. They contain great wisdom and I hope you will find them inspiring. A variety of my artwork is included with a few examples of how this thinking process affects one’s art.
