Sea and Sky

Where the sea meets the sky... just waiting to see something magical happen through the fog. What an interesting morning.

Flower Vase

It is always a wonderful surprise to see a new vase full of flowers in my studio every three days. The flowers come from my very large garden. The flowers are part of the creative process for the Morning Arias.

Early Fall Days

Yesterday was a very busy day in the studio and in the house ... finally had a few minutes to relax and enjoy the warm fall afternoon. It was really refreshing to just let go and let everything fall away for a short time. I really love these gorgeous fall afternoons. I wish they would not end.

Beauty in Everything

My eyes constantly search out beauty everywhere and in every environ., in a flower, a mountain, a sonnet, a symphony, and a garden. There is a thrill I feel when I look out at my garden and see the beauty in each flower... a flower, at once so simple, yet so complex... beauty within beauty.

New Every Morning

It seems that every morning when I take my walk in the garden and along the beach, I find something new to photograph. This time it is a jellyfish. Like I have always said, be vigilant, there is something new every morning... somewhere. Hoping that everyone has a terrific day.

The Art Table

The art table, in my studio... filled with all types of objects to help in the creative process. There are many sub-projects going on at any one time, that are also on the table... painting, writing, photography, cards, letters, and even a book.

Looking Up

Sometimes I am so curious about the things around me, that I forget to look upward and see the intricate patterns that the trees and sky make... ever changing with the light, shadows and seasons... abstract forms are all around us. In this busy world we live in, lets take time to look at the things around us in such a way, that we not only look, but actually see with depth the encompassing environs around us.

This Morning's Aria

On my way to Seattle today, but I thought that I would put up this mornings aria that I just finished. To a fine art printer today, to see about having some giclee's printed.

New Every Morning

I found this on the beach this morning... it is alive. A person never knows what surprises await just around the corner of some long forgotten corner of the world. Even when I walk the same area in the mornings... it is really surprising how many new and interesting things are out there to see, especially when we choose to open our eyes and really take time to explore our surroundings.

Only the Shadow Knows

Don't stand in your own shadow, get yourself out of the way so that your big self can stride forward.

Morning Aria Creation

A new Morning Aria that I have been working on... it is almost at the stage of being finished. Sometimes it takes awhile until i feel that the painting is done. It is at that special moment when I get this feeling of completion... that the circle from being created to being a complete new work is accomplished.

Rudy My Assistant

Here sits my adorable assistant Rudy. I think he wants to go for a long swim, but I had to convince him otherwise, since after the beach walk we are going to town and it would not be fitting for him to be all wet in the car. He looked at me in agreement and off to the car he went.
