I have been painting consistently now for about six months, when I was introduced to Oil and Cold Wax medium.  I enjoy abstracts as I find I am able to express my emotions for any given life experience with them.   I have been known to paint a portrait or two from photos, however, they take quite some time to complete.  I prefer to paint to music and let everything flow. I have taught paint nights classes and how to mix color so to keep paint purchases efficient.  I have been a member of the HCAA since 2020, and have sold pieces, for which I am grateful, as 50% of the proceeds goes to women with breast cancer.

Art like Dance is an expression of the soul, and as such, subject to scrutiny.  It is that scrutiny that creates the passion, the passion to make one feel.  It matters not the emotion; sad, happy, lonely, exuberant, hopeful, hateful, loving- all part of living. Technical Art, Abstract, Strange scenes, peculiar figures, random objects, loved ones, events and everyday existence offer a plethora of ways to day dream and feel when captured through one's soul onto medium.  And isn't that what we all want to do?  Feel?  What is living without that?
