How It Began
Published On: February 2, 2015
Now I am taking a risk.  This is a piece I wrote for my creativity mentor in California.  It is from the heart and a bit like prose, I guess, so please indulge me here. Sitting in the middle of the floor, laying out my brushes in an orderly line on my dust-rug, paints in lines of color, all looking very professional and easy to see.  A sense of order descended into the room, as I breathed a sigh of relief, Continue Reading
In Transition
Published On: February 1, 2015
Painting over an old piece always creates preliminary tension in me. Am I doing the ‘soul’ I have painted an injury.  There is a life in my paintings that speaks to me in ways I keep personal. Sometimes the essence I see is not brimming with life. Something in my connection is missing. Am I justifying a destructive action or am I releasing a soul from the bondage of my canvas.  After all these years giving life to the canvas Continue Reading
The Listening
Published On: January 15, 2015
When you fill your day with the ‘doing-ness’ of life without consciousness nor intention, the days become barren, even hard to endure. Angst often slowly seeps into the gaps. A ‘listening ‘ practice allows you to enter the world of stillness, deep-seeing and presence. It allows you to burrow deep into the inner sanctum to pull out from beyond the illusion. You listen to your thoughts not following, just observing. The witness rather than the doer you listen to the world Continue Reading
Being with Wild Horses
Published On: November 25, 2014
A thought revisited. When I was recently at Return to Freedom mustang sanctuary in USA, I had an experience, a realization that would change the focus of my journey. Given the morning to wander free with any of the residents herds, I set off, water bottle journal and walkie talkie in my canvas bag. I knew I wanted the furthest herd to walk across the sun parched drought fatigued land and follow my nose. Though these horse were rescued and not truly Continue Reading

As I surface again, delving into my own painting, I find some of the flow has disappeared from my canvas. Though one could say I feel an artist’s block Continue Reading
Commission - A Personal Journey
Published On: August 16, 2014
Resting place – el camino santiago Clutching my brushes I leapt into an encounter with the unknown, a challenge to paint from the soul of another.  So began a dialogue that would give me a richness that had been missing in my art for a long time. Over the years those who have bought my paintings have told me that my work reflects a personal journey in their life. A momento, something they hold in  rmemory in a way that words Continue Reading
