Your Opinion Is Needed, What Do You Think? New Paintings to Share..

Hi Art Lovers & Supporters,

I know it has been awhile (Sorry) since I posted but sometimes you have to step back and analyze where you have been and where you want to go.  The artist field is going through a transition.  The influencers are saying that fine artists should do more of their own marketing.  There are fewer galleries still available to represent us many more artists so we must try to sell our work by ourselves. That takes time to research, a learning curve and money!  YIKES!!

And, recently I decided to create products with sections of my art painting images on them so that more people would have the ability to carry art with them throughout their day.  Art has a soothing result on many people so carrying a favorite image on their daily, favorite items could have a profound. I’m toying with the idea of allowing clients interested in a certain section of a particular painting of their choice to order a product that I carry with that selected section designed on it.  But they have to realize that that will take a little additional time for delivery but it will be worth it I think.  Let me know what you think about art on products. Since I will be trying to open a shop soon,  Please…I need the feedback.  I have a lot of designs that I could create with but here are just a couple things I have been toying with:


I also want to share some new paintings:

This is a series called Crazy Daze.  They are 12″ X 12″ X 1.5 each • Acrylic/MM on Canvas.

Artists Need Feedback! Are you giving artists some feedback? And if not, why not? I would be interested in your views on my work and ideas.  Don’t worry…you won’t hurt my feelings and I rely on YOU.

Thank your for your continued support and while you are here, if you would add your name to my mailing list so I can keep you informed, I would greatly appreciate it.

Embrace Series of Paintings – The Meaning to the Artist

My Embrace Series of 8 paintings are now up on my website for you to view.  It is a series of acrylic paintings using the universal symbols “X” and “O” for kiss and hug to represent embracing each others differences, as well as, likenesses. With the world and the economy in such turmoil we need to find common ground and start a dialogue with our brothers and sisters in this world.

Your feedback on the series is welcome and your comments on which one(s) you like best in the series would be appreciated.

New Series of Paintings

Just started a series of paintings several months ago using the universal symbols for X’s and O’s for signs of embracing and showing affection. With all the fighting, bloodshed and lack of compassion that is witnessed in the news today, I felt a need to comment through my painting the suggestion to embrace each others differences, as well as, the likenesses. While many of my paintings result in colorful, cheerful, semi-abstract images, they are a creative vehicle for me to work out the frustrations of the world I see and experience around me.  They are like psychological sessions for me and result, most times, in a more peaceful spirit within upon their completion.  While I might not be able to change the world, I can put my perspective out there to share and provoke some thought through my images. There will be 7 – 8 paintings in the series and 7 are finished and ready for photographing.  This one, the 1st in the series, is called Embrace #1, 16″ X 12″, acrylic/mixed media on canvas, $650.  While the first 3 images are smaller paintings and can be viewed in the Newest Paintings section of my website now, the last 4 paintings in the series are larger, 30″ X 24″ and should be up on my website by mid July.  Comments on the subject or the paintings are most welcome.
