It's a winding bumpy road. My paintings have messages but sometimes they're hard to read so I'm putting some thoughts into words as well as paint. I'll be posting opinions and memories and hope to get the messages across more clearly.

Here's a sample of a custom painting I can do for you but with some of your own favorite memorabilia. This one was for my mother with her bible, my grandfather's pocket watch, letters from my dad in WW I, a souvenir handkerchief from France a wedding candlestick and indications of her love of music and nature. It's 15 X 30 inches and I will paint one for you for $250.00 if you will send me photos of some of your favorite things. I'm currently working on one as a wedding gift (much more personal than a toaster). Send me an email if you're interested. firstname.lastname@example.org

A little of this goes a long way. Let's take a lesson... speak softly but pack a wallop. How's this for a hostess gift for a gourmet cook? $25.00 for a 3x3 in. original oil painting and small wooden easel; about the price of a nice bottle of wine but lasts longer.

Here's an example of a philodendron leaf with a very orderly structure but wild and seemingly disorganized frilly leaves. And the combination is perfect. Do you think we humans could successfully and respectfully coexist with order and and chaos? Maybe we should take a lesson from a philodendron leaf.

I built you a nest with love and patience. I lined it with my softest dreams and warmed it with faith they would come true. I nourished you with Buffalo Bob and Curious George and cuddled you with a plastic dog. I helped you grow strong and you flew away. What went wrong?

Do you think this is a drastic departure from my representational paintings? Well, maybe... in a way. But do you see the same clean colors, sharp edges and orderly design? Plus it still represents something... ETERNITY. It's 24 x 36 in. on a 2 in. wrapped canvas painted on all sides and priced at $300.00. Opinion?
