I spent some time working with the acrylics but last week the watercolor called me back.  I truly do enjoy watercolor and the avenues it opens to me–much more than acrylic which I haven’t had the time to explore.  I know that there are many things to be done with acrylic; however, my experience lies in watercolor and the new techniques I exploring.  The map piece below is  a direction that I first experimented with about a year ago–The Terra Series.  Last week I worked on four pieces, one which I show here and the others on my website– http//

The mapping into uncharted territories is what intrigues me most.  There are several layers of color that are laid down in a variety of techniques.  I have been accepted into Portland Open Studios which will take place in the on two weekends in October –11-12th and 18-19th, 2008, which will showcase the series. I am hoping that the work will appeal to others as it does to me.

In the meantime, I am continuing to work on Sacred Words Imperfect Series.  I have a solo show in May 2008 at a small gallery in Southeast Portland–Janovec Gallery which will focus on the Sacred Words Series.



Welcome to my studio….

The world of blog has come to me in my painting studio.  It’s my intention to keep friends and patrons interested in my work up-t0-date.  A second incentive is personal–to keep me working and explode the myth that I am in my studio alone and no one is aware of how much work I am producing.  Whether anyone reads the blog or not may not be as important as knowing that I need to be in my studio producing work.

 At the beginning of the month, I ventured into acrylic for a short experiment.  The results, Time Squared #1, is shown.
