No. 30 _ It's about Love

I have called this "It's about Love" because I want to spend my time focusing on the things that I want in my life and how I want to feel about the world around me and the people in my life. I want to always hold love in my heart and I am thinking that this will be a better focus then all the other stuff that creeps into my head at times. So I painted this because I love still, painting faces and it overlaps something that was a more graphic painting so the whole image has a graphic feel to it. I wrote the message in the inner circle like in the recesses of my own heart and mind. In my Heart of hearts .. this is where I want to be. So just for now .. that's where I am .. it's about Love .. so I wish that for you who come here and for all that may pass my way.. to know love, to feel love, to be love, to have love, to be saturated with love forever and always. Always Love!!!

Have a love filled day and thanks for stopping over and for visiting. Not sure I'm done totally with this one just yet .. but I'll let you know. Ciao...

No. 29 Abstract _ Releasing Joy

Today is Abstract 29 and I decided to title this one Releasing Joy because I decided to just have a blast and release my inner child to just have fun and put it out there. That's just what I did. I'm going to do a bunch more that is like this I think .. it's just fun.

When I'm not at home painting for my blog, lately I've been going down to the gallery that I've been selling some of my work and painting along with some other artists that are there. I have had a blast doing this and then interacting with people that happen to come into the gallery. It's something I think I've needed. I'm doing a kind of abstract face on a large surface. I'm enjoying the evolution of that work. It's always funny to see the public's response to my work. Sometimes it makes me laugh. But i'm enjoying the whole thing. So I'm in gratitude. Happy to be painting every day!!!

This is a smaller painting about 10" x 10" and on primed canvas but not stretched. Please contact me if you are interested in this painting. Have a wonderful JOY filled day.. i'm planning too. Thanks for stopping over. :)

No. 28 Abstract

For the last two days I have been painting all day. I cut canvas from a large roll that I have and just started painting all of the pieces I had. This one was an experiment with laying down color and using an old plastic card to spread it around. I really enjoyed the results and the way that the paint went on. I'm enjoying the mixing of color's and usually my work has been just one color but now it just seems to be exploding from me.

I painted this alone in the yard out in the sunshine along with several other's that will be added to my blog as I work to finish them.

The size of this is about 17" x 20" on an unstretched canvas.  If you are interested in this painting please email me at Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Abstract # 27 Perceptions in My Head

Yesterday I reconnected with a good friend and we had good conversation and she is someone I have known for a long time. We talked about what has been going on in our lives and when you talk to someone that has similar views as your own you can share your thoughts about the world and life, your disappointments and hopes for life with out fear of judgement. I can hear her life and her ideas, her struggles and hopes without judgement. There aren't many people in my life where there is equal amounts of give and take in a conversation. Maybe as I go along I am better able to overcome my mis - perceptions of relationships, what I want, what I hope for, what feeds my heart and soul. I never know for sure what anyone else thinks in their heads and all I really know for sure is what I think in my head. That's a scary place sometimes .. inside my head haha. We talked about forgiveness and about letting go. I am grateful for this connection and for the mutual sharing that we have. I painted this painting while we were talking. This one makes me happy.

This painting is 7"x7" on a stretched gallery wrapped canvas. It is acrylic. Thanks for stopping over and if you are interested in this painting please contact me at Have a wonderful connection filled day!!!
