J.J. said that “…freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose…” To me freedom means that I can choose live (and love) unconditionally…some would say that’s not possible, maybe it’s not for some, but it is a great goal and I believe I am getting stronger and better at it everyday. 🙂 If I…

Videos of Paintings


Well I have been a busy bee painting and making videos. I am planning some online classes that I am going to launch soon. In the meantime I have been busily creating videos of paintings that I did some years ago. I recorded the videos because I had intended on doing these online classes all…
