New Life

This painting is especially meaningful to me. I feel it represents a breakthrough I am making. I have finally found TRUE happiness. The most mundane things are magical to me. Every day I am finding a million reasons why I am glad to be alive.

Here is one of my favorite quotes:

"The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears."
-John Vance Cheney


I finally broke through my creative block and came up with this. I've always been drawn to color, but lately even more so. Perhaps it represents the happier time in my life I am experiencing.

This painting is titled "Wallflower", not because the woman is shy or socially awkward, but rather she is the one that observes at parties. People intrigue her, she likes to figure them out.

Buy some beautiful art for a great cause. My friend, Sarah, is selling some of her art in a silent auction to help a special family who is faced with tragedy. Read more about it here: And here is Sarah's blog: ...also, if you buy one of my pieces within the next 30 days, I will donate 50% of my online sales to the same cause.

I'm Still Here

I haven't been painting as much lately, in part because I have a lot of big, life-changing events studding my recent life. Another reason--I have ran into a creative block. It's not that I'm not feeling creative, it's just that I am ready to make some changes with my art and I am in a sort of experimental mode. And experimenting can actually be scary and at times I freeze and do nothing.

So I ran into this book and I've started reading it, and it's actually quite good. It's interesting how the right books come at the right time for me. Hopefully I will de-slump soon. I'll keep you posted.
