This is a new little 8"x 8" I just completed called "The Ghost". See the top 3 detail photos, I want to do them big, it will be a challenge as there is a lot of chance in my work, my process leaves a lot open so things can just happen, but I think I can get close, I will do a series of these paintings gradually going up in size until I reach the 47"x 47" goal. For now I have put all my other ideas and projects aside. Very excited and happy to be in the painting flow again :-).
Always love to hear your thoughts.

I am a painter living in the beautiful moutain town of Taos New Mexico.
I have been painting since I was eight years old when I declared to my mother that I wanted to be an artist. She promptly went out and bought me an oil set. Perhaps not the wisest choice for a child, but it got me started. I have been painting ever since and my way of working and what I paint has changed dramatically over the years. At this point in time I am working with mixed media on board and canvas. Nearly every image starts with a dream, either waking or sleeping. Other subjects that inform my work are literature and nature. Each painting is for me an adventure in color and texture,an exploration of joy and a way for me to get to know myself better. There is always a personal narrative and some hidden message that I am unaware of until it reveals itself in the finished piece. My paintings are about whatever is going on in my life at the time I am painting. My intention when I do a painting is to be true to my authentic voice and perhaps to open someone's heart and mind to all the possibilities around them.
