Almost Complete Now ...

I started taking out the white because it seemed to distract, rather than add to the compositions. Not sure what else I will tweak. 

SO Close!

There are a few touchups and changes I want to make to this pair, but they are basically finished.


Sound the Horn! The Mail is In!

The top card is from my friend Joma, who lives somewhere in New Jersey. 

The bottom card is from my niece Jane, who lives in Milwaukee.

New Paintings

These two paintings are 16"x20", acrylic on canvas. There is a glare on the upper edge because of my lighting. These were inspired by one of the recent postcards I made. I love the intersection of the underlying shapes and the larger shapes formed by blocking out the red glaze. Fun to do, and fun to look at.

New Postcards Today


The color scheme here is bold, to say the least. Orange, Red, teal and gold. Some say you have to have neutrals to make bright colors sing. I am not sure about that.

These postcards seemed uncoordinated, so I put a layer of Quinacridone Gold on them to unify the images.

Leah's GORGEOUS Card!

 My friend Leah sent me this wonderful card, larger than a traditional postcard. It got a little scuffed up in the mail, but it is hauntingly beautiful as is! Kelp forest!

Yellow, Red Violet, Blue Violet Again


A postcard painting.

... And the postcards!

How to Respond to my Postcard

 IF you feel like responding to a postcard I sent to you, here are some ideas:

1. send me something you make, a piece of art, a drawing, a diagram, a poem ...

2. Send me the web address of something you love online, a website, or a video ...

3. Send me something you run across that you love: a beautiful leaf, a cartoon you saw in the newspaper ...

4. Send me a postcard from where you live, an image of something your area is known for ...

5. IF a friend sees your postcard and would like me to send them one, have them send me their home address, either in the mail or via
