Flying High

Trying to calm my frazzled nerves -- checking out a painting I did a while back and rediscovered: "Flying High," oil on canvas, 16"x16". Realizing I have to start selling some of my paintings again. Too many, no place to turn around.

An Ode to Wayne Wood

Wayne, this painting is for you. So hard to say goodbye -- but standing in front of my easel and letting the colors tell the story, I felt your music and your songs, your passionate arguments for peace and justice. So, here we have waves of bright colors that remind me of the ocean at sunset. "To Life!" is the title.

Remembering a very good friend

Losing Wayne Wood was a shock. His music, his singing and his conversation are silenced. Standing in front of my easel and painting as I thought of him brought to the surface of my canvas bright colors and motion that reminds of the ocean at sunset. I call the painting "To Life!"

To Life!

A bright light was tuned off this past week when we lost Wayne Wood. I stood in front of my easel and painted my heart out. The result is a lively, happy picture full of light and activity.

May the Memory of Wayne Wood Live On!

The sudden loss of Wayne Wood Was a big shock. I stood in front of my easel and painted my heart out. The result is "To Life." It's bright and full of sunshine, a picture of his soul.

Victoria's Secret

The real Victoria surfaced when I let this painting rip. The elegant, graceful, generous person who will live with this painting emerged without any fuss or bother.
