Goodbye, Painting a Day, and thanks for now.

Maybe one day I will attempt again, but for now I miss my portraits and larger scale works.

#003 of Painting a Day. Week's theme is COFFEE!

The phrase, "I never promised you a rose garden," keeps popping into my head as I paint. I think my paintings are sending me messages. I'm coming to realize just how much goes on in my head when I paint. Lots of distractions. And it makes me question my end product. But that's what this is all about...sticking with it, trying to focus, and accomplishing a

Geometric Paintings

I'm finding a friend in experimenting with painting geometric designs. It's quite meditational.
