Challenging yourself each and every day makes you a better person and certainly makes an artist a better artist.  I love experimenting and challenging my abilities as an artist.  Crossing over into different genres and meshing them together is something I love to do.  I hope you all enjoy my new work and take on a challenge for yourself.....it is so rewarding.

May I be so bold to think that since we have, in a sense been sequestered for all these months that we have become less tolerant, patient and kind.  

This abstract painting on paper is titled "Dulce" (Sweet). I hope we all can experience patience and kindness while the world tries to pull itself together.  

 

Be Kind

Be Patient 

Be Love
