Virginia, United States
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Lazy Days of Summer

Under a Stormy Sky Monotype (C)

Lazy days of summer. I have been enjoying these lazy days. Rainy or not, hot or not, humid or not. I have been lazy. I just realized it will be time to go back to work on the 12th. Somehow, I think that once I am on a schedule, I can get more done. Why is that?

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs

An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth. Bonnie Friedman

Time is just something that we assign. You know, past, present, it's just all arbitrary. Most Native Americans, they don't think of time as linear; in time, out of time, I never have enough time, circular time, the Stevens wheel. All moments are happening all the time. Robin Green and Mitchell Burress, Northern Exposure, Hello, I Love You, 1994

My mind is full of ideas, time to organize and produce. Time to let go of the dogma. Time to stop being lazy and get away from this computer and do something productive.
If you happen to get a little time, please go check out the impressive BIG paintings at Signature 9 Gallery. I went to the opening last Friday night and it was an incredible opening! Fantastic art and artists and an array of unique h'orderves . WOW.

Also, I just wanted to let everyone know about the WVTF ART SHOW OPEN HOUSE:
