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.

The Landscape

Once again, intrigued by the landscape. I always think of Walt Whitman. Many of my paintings, monotypes, and watercolors begin with the thought of a poem or song.

A Song of the Rolling Earth
by Walt Whitman(1819-1892)

A song of the rolling earth,
and of words according,
Were you thinking that those were the words,
those upright lines? those curves, angles, dots?
No, those are not the words, the substantial words are in the ground and sea,
They are in the air, they are in you.

New Monotypes

Dancing Moon (c) monotype

I have not had quite the creative surge I had hoped for during this spring break.
I have managed to squeek out a few new monotypes.
I think I will try again today...

Ready to Show

Spring break is upon us, yet it is 32 degrees outside today with a light dusting of snow. I am using the day to get ready for the Open Studio Tours in a few weeks. Here are a couple of new creations.

Spring Symphony

Collage by gls (C)

A few inches of rain fell here this weekend. Actually, it down poured! I did get to play a little bit in the studio, but I was more excited about the Spring Symphony of color happening outside! The flowers are coming up, the trees are branching out with green tips, the frogs are peeping, and the birds are visiting the bird houses I put up! Life is happening!

Now, if I could just get some art work done...
