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…

#FASOrocks


I want to share my experience with my website provider FASO. Today I decided to rework my website and add a category of new work. Everything was going great until I made a huge error and messed up my entire website. I immediately asked for help from their Customer Support staff, and as usual I…

“Gratitude”


I remember my dad teaching us is to always be kind and caring, loving and compassionate, sharing and respectful.

Imaginal Cells/ Transformation


Lately I have been going though many changes. I mean there are some things that are difficult to come to terms with, like a cherished belief, letting go of a lifelong habit, removing some favorite, yet not so good things out of my life. These things are hard to do, but I have found that…

Hello, What’s New? It’s Good to See You!

Loose & Quick


There will be more daily quick and loose works coming soon; I intend on making this a daily practice to improve my skills. Plein Aire season is starting so that will be a good motivator.

Letting Go with Joy, Love & Peace.


It is said that an artist is their own worse critic…well I certainly have been. I know it is a good thing to take pride in my work and always push the boundaries in order to achieve the level of painting that I want to achieve; not comparing myself but to be better than I…

Red Blouse


My latest portrait is titled Red Blouse. What I so love about this painting is that the red from the blouse has reflected onto my model (Cheryl) not only under her chin, but also the lower lip, the nose and eyes. This was so appealing to me and I am very happy with the results….

Pink Ink


Pink is a colour that I have lots of fun creating with and associate with so many joyful and positive things such as, believe it or not, serenity (although I know most people think of blue or purple for serenity); love; babies :D; beauty; softness; happiness; health and life in general. So it is understandable…

Paintings in Photography – Inspired by Gustav Klimt.


Here are the results of my paintings that were inspired by Gustav Klimt. This is an awesome and very involved project. I feel as though there is a whole world that lies underneath this inspiration and my finished product cannot keep up with all of my ideas. Once I get a refined flow happening, I’m…

Andrea


Have you ever been in a sleep and had such a vivid dream that you see it so clearly…and in color? I have them all the time, sometimes I may even take the time to write them down; I find it helps to bring them back to life when I read about them months or…
