Well, so far this has been an amazing year for both myself and my art! I feel I am making new strides in my artwork and things seem to be coming together for me. My latest oil painting, "THE RAVEN", was completed bundled up in my thermal underwear and pajamas in my extremely cold studio! In my pajamas, of course, because most of the time I liked to paint late in the evening into the early morning and then pass out in my bed! During the night when I paint I can be "ALONE"! COMPLETELY ALONE! This is a necessity when I am painting and meditating a feeling of "spirituality", and becoming completely absorbed in the "process" and in the painting itself. People may not realize the hours and hours each day that an artist can spend working on a piece like this. Also, I enjoy listening to various music while I paint (with earphones of course....at night you see....can't wake anyone!) SO! My painting, "THE RAVEN" is complete and I have already been contemplating and drawing sketches for my next painting! So stay tuned for more paintings and visit my website! MARVELOUS THINGS YET TO COME!
