For Margarita

Painting for Cecilia


Cecilia will be here around May 8th.

Family and friends (including me) all wait 


                                               to meet her and love her. 


Proud parents will be there 


                                               to raise her, nurture her, and love her. 


Two brothers will be there 


                                               to help her, pick on her, protect her, and love her. 










We will all be there to love her.

Me and My Social Media

I want to make art!
All I want to do is make art. I want to stay home and create. I have enough ideas to keep me busy for the rest of my life... no matter how long that is. I would love to be a resident artist or have a rich patron. But... this is the real world... and I must work as a part-time retail cashier and rely on occasional sales of my artwork. If I make any sales, it is usually just enough to buy more art supplies.

Art is inside me

It is all around me

It is my voice

It speaks to me

Show and Tell: End of the Day

Painting: End of the Day 01


I did this painting using a reference photo I took during a studio drawing session. The model graciously allowed us to take photographs and I was quite happy with a few. I think Degas would have liked them.

Broken Third: The Hope

Broken 3 Scan hands


She was broken for five years...

Spirit, soul, and body.

Another five spent mending.

Always mending...

a lifetime of mending.

When asked if she had

a hand in the other's demise...


“It is proof God answers prayer!”

Three more hoping...
