16 Mini-Paintings

I’m taking a self-paced online course in abstract painting, which is the reason you’ll notice a lot of new work here and there online. Yesterday I completed an exercise which required taking a large (18×24) sheet of heavy watercolor paper and dividing it up into sections. Following a set of suggestions and a demonstration, theContinue reading “16 Mini-Paintings”

Hello April!

Welcome April! I’m excited to report that my artwork was accepted and is featured in an online venue run by Michael Jacobson at The New Post-literate: A Gallery of Asemic Writing. Have a look around–the gallery is fascinating! My original piece wasn’t intended to explore asemic writing, but it does have related elements, and soContinue reading “Hello April!”

From the Ether

This exercise is meant to bring forth images directly from the subconscious as the artist works on the page. The ladies emerge organically as layers of mixed media are applied with collage elements, joined together in a dream-like, ethereal state. A meditative mood is also created in the beginning by using a poem as aContinue reading “From the Ether”

An Unseen Force

“It was in 1919 when I first started my work. I then had an inspiration to take up my pen and do all kinds of works of an artistic type. I felt that I had an artistic faculty seeking expression. It took various forms. First of all, knitting – even without any pattern. Then cameContinue reading “An Unseen Force”

Happy Women’s Day ’21

Today is International Women’s Day so to celebrate the women in my life, my dear family members, friends, and co-workers, I made a new painting today. In reality, it was an abstract that I didn’t think was working too well. I kept re-working it until I turned all the ugly parts into flowers. I likedContinue reading “Happy Women’s Day ’21”

No Bed of Roses

The desire to paint has been building up for quite a while. Since 2009, I’ve made drawings and collages using ink pens, pencils, and basic colored markers. I’ve created hundreds of iPad drawings, colorizing them using digital technology, but I don’t think I’ve actually painted with a brush and water since around 1985 when IContinue reading “No Bed of Roses”

August Updates

Since the inception of the stay-at-home order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been unnervingly productive. I say ‘unnervingly’ because I am exhausting myself with my own obsessive-compulsive behavior. I can’t seem to settle down and have felt the need to ‘catch up’ on everything I’ve neglected to do in my creative life before theContinue reading “August Updates”

August Update

The fundraiser I was working on for Black Scat Books in July was a huge success! We met our goal in almost exactly one month. August will be exciting as I’m working on a secret project that involves a film.  That’s all I can say for now, but I should have more to report near the end ofContinue reading “August Update”
