I decided to do a piece based on that lovely poem entitled "Lost" by David Wagoner that I posted a few days ago. I get so inspired by poetry...

I'm itching to get back "out there" doing live painting with people. Hope the warm weather comes early this year.

I'm really enjoying these mixed media pieces. Learning how to use all the new media is an adventure!

I'm in love with color. I simply cannot paint with realistic colors all the time - it bores me. It's all about the color - that's what really gets my juices flowing. I painted this while listening to Jimmy Buffet. I figured it would help get me through the winter!
"In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer."
I had an interesting experience last night. I was asked to come "pray through" a home in order to help identify what might be causing some spooky things going on in the house. It turned out that it was masks and clay statues from Africa. Even the bag they were packaged in had to go. So, if you are an art lover like me, be careful what you buy under the umbrella of "art." It can sometimes be unclean. A wonderful book to read on the subject is "Protecting Your Home From Spiritual Darkness" by Chuck Pierce.

This one has a lovely texture. Makes you want to touch it. If what they say about an artist's work reflecting who they are, then you can see I have a wonderful life!

I live in one of the beach capitals of the USA, Myrtle Beach. Every summer, I realize afresh that the real reason that folks come here is to enjoy the beach and swim in the ocean. We have a veritable plethora of tacky forms of shopping and entertainment. It isn't called the "Redneck Riviera" for nothing. Yet, the Beach is what calls them.....
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

The New Year always makes me want to wear white. Must be something about a fresh start. This year I want to focus on putting even more of myself and all the love that I feel into my art. We've taken down all the Christmas decorations already. The house always looks so empty after that. My mom has been here visiting for a week, so it has been a week of food and fun! Hope you had a wonderful one, too!
My daughter's friend, Maddi, asked to use my barn/studio and my help to paint her hub cabs blue. Of course I had to say yes, because I encourage anyone who wants to express themself. They look wild - I like them!
