24"Hx36"W, acrylic and paper on canvas. This is a rework of an older painting that seemed to need some zing. In fact, I am still not satisfied with it.

Process / Style Development

These paintings have been on my living room wall since October of 2021.  A couple of days ago, I realized that I love pattern and masking off shapes that show the underlying layer. So, I am trying that out on this series.
1. I coat the first layer with GAC 800
2. I apply contact paper shapes as masks
3. I coat the entire surface with a glaze color
4. I remove the masks

New Year's Day 2023

New Year's Eve 2022


The end of the western calendar year, a time of transition for many of us. I believe it is important to have a vision of the future that is affirming. Humanity cannot solve our collective issues without unifying with each other and realizing that we are the managers of nature now. For too long we have seen ourselves as humans vs. nature. This vision must be replaced with one that is integrative.

Winter Solstice 2022


Spread made using images cut from holiday cards that feature nature themes, an envelope, plus gel printed papers. The Winter Solstice is a time of pausing, when nature is at her slowest, with a promise of regeneration of all life.

Little Paintings on the Floor

 Small (6x6x1/8") wood panels with collage on them, lying on my studio floor drying and curing. Acrylic and paper.

Cardboard Decorations

 I painted these on corrugated cardboard from a shipping box I received. They had those great holes (except for that little square one). I painted them dark green, dark red, blue-green or purple and then stenciled gold patterns on them. Not sure what I will do with them!
