All that crisp whiteness staring back at me. It feels a little like a dare. A dare to see what will come out when I get to work.

Here are some snap shots of my two new paintings in their earliest stages.

  • You write so beautifully, so soulfully. I wanted to leave a comment on “sold”, but couldn’t figure out how/where. But both of these posts touched me. As an artist myself, I could have written this, but you did it so much better. Like you read my mind. I look forward to following you.
