20″x 20″ “Waterview” has been a long time coming. It was commissioned back in February, and by the time I had ordered the framing supplies, my source would be shut down for @ 10 weeks due to the pandemic. But I needn’t have worried, since the creation of the piece itself turned out to takeContinue reading “Waterview. SOLD”

Three Birds. $300.
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″
Uprising. NOT FOR SALE
I was going to say “there’s good news and bad news,” but I’ve decided it’s actually all good! This piece came about as a result of a call for artists for the latest Arts in the Airport exhibition at McGhee Tyson (always a good show! Swing by if you’re flying through K-town!). I thought itContinue reading “Uprising. NOT FOR SALE”
The Sinking. $150.
There’s a lot going on in this piece called “The Sinking.” It’s a feeling. It’s an event. It’s an observation. It’s a situation: an inexorable vortex pulls you down into darkness. Sometimes it takes awhile, closing in with tendrils of realization. I like interpreting a “sinking” in art, but I sure don’t like experiencing it!Continue reading “The Sinking. $150.”
“Keepsake Plus” for Jenn and Paul SOLD
How to know you’re giving a wedding gift that the couple will treasure? And make it uniquely one-of-a-kind? I decided that enhancing and framing Jennifer and Paul Ritter’s wedding invitation would do the trick. Their wedding colors — jewel tones of purple, violet, magenta and pink, with softer green and yellow accents — were soContinue reading ““Keepsake Plus” for Jenn and Paul SOLD”

Still available! Room divider screens are among my most popular pieces. This one’s in a pretty palette of mauve/taupe/green.

Circle Rays on Green. SOLD
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”
Green Stripes Wooden Box. $50.
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.”
Reader’s Digest Condensed Book Cover of the Week 05.09.2016
This cover is from a series I call “Wallpaper.” It doesn’t have a main color, just a subtle maroon and dark green, vaguely stylized floral design on a beige background. And the design reminds me of wallpaper that you might have seen in someone’s grandmother’s kitchen a long time ago. It’s great for giving someContinue reading “Reader’s Digest Condensed Book Cover of the Week 05.09.2016”
On the other hand, it’s great to get wonky sometimes. With a nice dash of balance, of course! I love the combinations of cool blue, gray, white, and tan. It’ll have a thin black frame around a white mat. Which makes me wonder … will your eyes be more drawn to the black lines, orContinue reading “Spires. $350.”
Red Gate. SOLD
“Red Gate” by artist Emily Shane, 16″ x 21 1/4″ Sometimes it feels good to get back to the basics of why I started working in this medium. Clean, clearly delineated lines. Symmetry. POP! Ahhhh.
RDCB Cover of the Week for 04.18.2016
I love the look of this #RDCB cover I call “Green Diamonds.” It also comes in tan/rose and gray/silver (depending on condition). #eyecandy #bookart
RDCB Cover of the Week for 04.11.2016
I call this #RDCB cover of the week for 4/11/16 “Dr. Seuss Fawn” because the flowers remind me of the Trufulla trees in “The Lorax” and there’s the cutest little fawn looking out at us, too. 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”
