Spring Forward with a Smile!

Well, I just celebrated my birthday and I am starting my 60th year around the sun and I couldn't be happier.  When people ask me "how long does it take to paint that?"  I like to say it's taken me all my life to create that piece.  It takes years of practice, thought, mistakes, love and dedication.

I just completed this piece, I hope you enjoy!

Farewell to 2018 and welcome 2019!

Happy New Year to you all and I thank you all for your support and encouragement.  

It's going to be 2019 in a few days and I wish you all a new year of good health and happiness.  

A new beginning is starting for me in Abstracts.  I will still continue to do my figurative cubist-surreal work along with several different series of Abstracts.  

You must always challenge yourself in life, it keeps you strong mentally and physically.  

Cheers!

Welcome Fall: Cool weather, pumpkins, Halloween and my favorite Holiday Thanksgiving.  I give thanks to all the people that support my art and the arts in general.  Without vision and creativity we would be a very sad world stuck in the dark ages.  I hope you enjoy my new series of Abstractions of Expressionism.  They are something I have been wanting to do for a long time and finally I faced this new challenge to create art that is Free of structure but has a unique voice.  I will be presenting these new pieces this weekend at the Summerlin Festival of Arts located in Downtown Summerlin, Las Vegas NV  Booth #55

Greetings!

    September sure came fast this year.  I hope that everyone had a fun and safe summer.  My travels this year have inspired me so much that it felt as though there were not enough hours in the day for me to paint.  I did manage to finish this last piece.  I hope you enjoy the humor and whimsical style.  

Title:  Nouna Loves Cake

Medium:  Oil

Support:  Canvas 48 inches by 60 inches

I have painted Nouna many times throughout the years, she is definitely my muse.  Nouna in Greek means Godmother and I fondly remember my Godmother when I was a child.  I affectionately paint my memory of Nouna.  She was a lovely lady and someone I loved very much.

Greetings all!  My recent trip to Belize for my daughter's wedding was truly an experience that allowed my imagination to travel as well.  

 

The Painting is titled:  Dreaming of Belize, I felt if there was a princess of the land she would resemble this painting.  There was a raw beauty of the land and the turquoise sea was a treat to explore.  The beautiful corals and aquatic life was abundant.  I am looking forward to my return to the beautiful country of Belize.

Music definitely is the universal language of the world.  Music has a way of getting people together in  a harmonious way.  I have recently travelled to Mexico City and San Miguel De Allende and even though my Spanish was limited I was able to enjoy the festive music that was a constant and beautiful sound.  Passionate and Colorful music was evident throughout both cities.   Please enjoy the Musician which will be available at the Reno Art Fest June 30th - July 1st in the Biggest Little City.  The festival takes place on Virginia st. between 4th and 6th street.
