Here’s “Three Birds.” Having dipped my toes into some representational waters, I feel good about this one. I love my clicker press. See that perfect full moon in a gray nighttime sky? I couldn’t have achieved it without this new piece of equipment. Makes me go “ahhhhhhhh…………… ” ❤ 14″x14.5″

At long last! Setbacks, glitches, technical difficulties, dayjob changes, Rx changes … those challenges and more have all contributed to this piece, and I honor my process. So there. I think artists have different ratios of time/energy that go into the concept and execution of their art. My particular medium weighs heavily on the execution side.Continue reading “Circle Rays on Green. SOLD”
Here’s a nice wooden box to put things in. It was originally a whiskey box. Now it’s for whatever your spirit says needs keeping. How about all those business cards you’ve collected, plus your old driver’s licenses and expired credit cards? How about marbles? How about feathers? Leaves? Hickory nuts? Pipe tobacco? Hey – it’sContinue reading “Green Stripes Wooden Box. $50.”
What do you do when your “big fine art piece” is stalled like traffic at rush-hour? I drop back to a smaller vision that can give me some fast satisfaction! Sort of validates my artistic process.

Is it Bambi? Could be. At any rate, this cover figures prominently in my “Secretarial Pool” piece currently inContinue reading “RDCB Cover of the Week for 04.11.2016”
This #RDCB cover is from a group I call “Botanicals.” Plants, flowers, vines, stalks — these are the big concepts in the Botanicals covers. It’s not that some of them aren’t very stylized, but they are all comprised most clearly of a repeated pattern with an organic element. I call this one “Red Buds.” SoContinue reading “RDCB Cover of the Week for 03.28.2016”
“Orange Blossom Special” is the #RDCB cover this week. Zigzag vines of bright orange leap up and down over gray flowers. I do love that color combo!
Gorgeous! This week’s #RDCB cover is “Lavender Leaves,” a soft botanical beauty.
