I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

Stones in the River


Watching the water flow over stones in a river is much like
watching the flames in a fire: very hypnotic and soothing.  I can lose myself on a river
bank for hours just watching and listening to the water dance over the different shapes
of the stones.

This painting is 18" high by 24" wide (before framing) and is done in acrylic with many transparent
layers on a gessoed board.  It is framed (see the photo below).  Funny, but as someone who usually paints in oils, I found using transparent layers of acrylic oddly meditative.
