Dear Reader, I am so glad you are here! Pull up a chair, have a cup of cheer, and chat for a while.
It is my dearest wish that you find some useful pleasure here: a beautiful image, idea or phrase that moves you to make something true of your own. When our hearts are moving, engaged, we are most alive, and if there is any Mission and Purpose to my artistic work beyond keeping me sane and alive, it is to help others find more Life in life.
For many years I wandered in, looked at, painted, and studied landscapes. I tried to convince people that they were more than just ‘background.’ When I saw the divinity in a weed’s blossom, I thought if I painted it well enough, other people would see it too. This didn’t work as well as I would have liked. But I have made some attractive pictures.
Recently I’ve been wandering in other art realms, drawing the figure, learning digital media, exploring fanwork and it’s culture. I’ve also been returning to the Garden and learning to live, and eat, closer to the mother earth, closer to my values.
So those are the things I’m likely to write about. I really hope you will visit from time to time, chime in and find something of meaning here! Please ask me anything you want to know, point out typos or other bugs, suggest a site I’d like or theme for writing, or just get in touch if you like. If you want to make a little blog of your own, let me know and I will help you get started!
And enjoy the blessings of this wonderous day.
love to all,
