I always thought I would feel I’d arrived as an artist with an exhibit in a hot, NYC gallery. Smiling, black dress, people milling about viewing my latest creations … but something clicked this weekend about success, and the arrival of dreams. An artist I admire was telling me why she hadn’t […]
Be sure to click on this painting for a larger view… Under the bridge the water moves, one thick rolling tongue. In this metal cavern of rivets and last night’s campfire cigarette butts and can top There is no time. Who slept here? This warm fire. We share this space. […]
Little itty bitty 6″ x 6″ baby gifts…. what fun! These are little turtles painted from a local pond with Nepalese papers and hand made pastels. The texture of the white flowers in the background are delightful.
