I am thrilled to say that my piece "Breaking The Surface"
found a new home! It makes me happy when art collectors
send me an image of the place where they hanged my work.
It's a satisfying ending to a long story.
Painting is truly a multi-step process. First an artwork is planned,
sketched and blocked in. Then the many layers of painting begin;
a series of adjustments and refinements.
Next, a completed work is varnished. It's like pouring water over
chalky river rocks restoring them to their warm vibrant tones.
Selecting a frame for an artwork is as pleasant as choosing a tie
to go with a suit or trying on shoes. It's important to get this step
My favorite part of the cycle of painting is when a buyer is moved
enough to purchase my work! That means someone, perhaps a
total stranger, connected with the idea behind my piece and my
passion became their passion.
I love it when this happens!
It gives completion to my painting. A finish. An end.
And then the cycle begins again...
