no show

due to certain last minute unforeseen circumstances i will not be hanging my artwork at Steeps in September. it is unfortunate but a lack of professionalism, on their part, has made this decision for me. i am closing this door so another may open.

for all of you who i met at the Art Walk this season, i know how excited you were to see my art and support me. not to worry! it is a big small world out there and this city offers many venues to hang my art. thank you for your understanding and continued support.
peace, luv and light! *wink*

this is my current painting. finished. i know so far i have barely posted this month. i do not like to post for the sake of just posting anything. considering that my blog is about my art and my writing i think it is understandable. i have quite a few things on the go right now. so my time and energy is being pulled in all directions. perhaps me painting this Buddha is very suiting... reminding me to breathe.

acrylic on canvas. 24x24

high voltage

this painting will be shipped off to England soon. my friend Stu has inspired this painting. he suggested that i do thunderstorm clouds. i absolutely luv thunderstorms, lightning and rain! even though thunderclouds are very impressive it is the lightning that has me in awe. a beautiful striking force. we can be like lightning. electrical sparks... currents that run within us and between us. sending life in all directions. connecting us to one another and to nature.

so when i said i was taking a break from painting, i knew it wasn't going to last very long. August is painting frenzy month for me.
