Latest Artwork, as of July 8

"Danae," acrylic on paper

Making art is a meditation in itself. I wrote about this in A Portal to Vibrancy:


I learn that painting is like meditation: by looking deeply, you see the possibilities. I show up at the canvas, offer myself as a communicant going to communion, as Matisse says. Hours pass like seconds. I learn the language of archetypes, how to persevere, struggle, walk away in frustration, come back with newfound hope, dance the subtle dance between craft and intuition, but most importantly, I witness how possibilities become discoveries.

Here are some of my latest images.

"Dancer," oil pastel on paper
