Eagles, Abstracts and Keepsakes - July 7 2020

Hello my adventurous friends!

I've been busy finishing various paintings to show you. They have all come
together at once, but they were all created separately over the past months.  

If you find my assorted inspirations and the combination of realism and
abstraction a bit confusing, please stick with me. I promise that with time my
vision will become clearer and you will start to discover the themes running
through my new paintings. I'm exploring lots of new ideas to see which ones
resonate most with me, and more importantly, which ones speak to you. It's a
whole new adventure in creativity that I hope you will enjoy as we discover
together where my wild ideas will take us all.

Stone Eagles

Carved in the 1720s, this pair of stone eagles stand guard over their urn.
Wings mantled, they stare at each other with open beaks as if engaged in an
intense discussion. Time and weather have stained the stone, adding to the
beauty created by a skilled master carver so long ago. I love the architectural
forms of classical sculpture like this beautiful urn.
Stone Eagles 36" x 36" Oil on panel $5900

Also available as Giclées starting at $790 and Petite Giclées starting at $95.

Abstract mixed media painting with beads.

Tandem follows the path of two lives lived side by side, jumping over the same
hurdles, following the same path, always connected. Each is an individual but
the journey is shared. Between them a sparkle of gold dust shows where the
magic happens.

Acrylic paint, pastel and speckled beads sewn to stretched canvas.

Keepsakes Collection

The Keepsakes Collection continues to evolve with new panels added, inspired
by the idea of memories kept in a special box to be treasured. I hope your life
is filled with happy memories. Celebrate them with your own collection of

Keepsakes are sold individually, so you can buy just one or two, or add to your
collection as I create more pieces. Large beads are sewn onto each black and
white painted panel, creating bold graphic designs. Hang them in a creative
grouping or set them on a shelf.

To my Trade Clients, Keepsakes make unique accents for shelves.
Sell them in your decor store too.

Hidden Themes

Are you starting to discover the themes emerging among my paintings? They
are becoming more and more about journeys through life, time and space.
The three new paintings featured today are about historical objects traveling
through time, journeys through life together, and the memories that are created
as keepsakes of those journeys. My love of beading is showing up too, and I
hope to incorporate more beads into future paintings.


I'd love to see how you display your art collections! Be adventurous and get
creative. You don't have to hang just one large painting on a wall. Create your
own style with a group of three or four that speak to you and tell your life story.
Start small with affordable pieces and enjoy seeing your collection grow over

Remember you can always contact me to arrange a payment plan. Many of my
collectors pay installments over 6 to 10 months so their art collecting fits into
their budget. It's easy - just contact me to set up monthly invoicing before you
buy online. There are no fees, and I'll ship your painting as soon as you pay in
full. Filling your life with beautiful fine art might be more attainable than you

Until next time, my very best wishes always,
