“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. But with a heart that was understandably guarded. A heart that had been on this same course before, but disappointed many times. […]
Friendships are like flowers. Bouquets. Annuals. Perennials. Each serving their own purpose.

After spending 16 consecutive days sitting in Marion Square during Charleston’s Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibit, here are a few thoughts and observations I came away with.

Day 8 into my painting called “HAITI: We have Not Forgotten” was the low […]
How do you stay clean while living in a tent? How do you live in a tent with strangers? How do you move on when your life and city has been devastated by an earthquake? I do not know. I’ve spent seven days trying to untangle a very complicated painting. But that’s about my biggest […]

It’s inspired by a photo that was taken in Port-au-Prince, Haiti just four months after this city was devastated by the earthquake on January 12, 2010.
