Why do I give my art as GIFTS? Because I think that everybody could use a few more Pictures of Hope in their lives! This month’s giveaway is a July Calendar for your desktop that includes my most recent painting called “Endurance.” Here is is drying on the easel in my studio today while the […]
My most recent “Endurance Story” happened in Charleston, SC. In the middle of a sun-baked park. Surrounded by several years of my artwork. Protected only by a 10″ x 10″ tent. For an endless string of 17 straight days. By the end of DAY ONE — all I could think was… “How did this ever […]
To my own advice. Here is what I told everybody. For an entire month. The month of March, 2017. “You cannot do it all. Choose wisely.

“Expecting” is one of many paintings I created during the summer of 2016. But this one was special. I painted it with a friend in mind. A friend who was expecting. Expecting. Hoping. Dreaming.

If left to my own devices, there isn’t much Christmas in my heart. Nothing within me looks forward to December. In my mind, this is a month that feels to me like forced-group-insanity. I don’t like to be told what to do. I don’t like to go along with the crowd. And I especially don’t like to do […]
In case you haven’t noticed, a new month is upon us. November. It starts tomorrow. A 30-day chance to break ground and cultivate a more grateful heart. Off the top of my head, here are the very first three reasons I came up with to Give Thanks. But the list is only limited by time, […]
