Falling Light and Poetry

Falling Light
Acrylic and Charcoal on Canvas
30" x 24"

I have a firm belief that my paintings are visual poems. What I am trying to convey is a feeling. I give just enough information to catch the viewers attention and then allow their imaginations take them away.

I belive I have succeed with Falling Light.

Where does it take you.

More than a Feeling

Pasture Mates
Oil on Canvas
34" x 34"

Starting a painting is easy! I begin with colour washes. I layer them. I manipulate the colour by placing one on top of the other. I let gravity play a part in the pigments settling and running. Most of the time I'm delighted. The work comes in the next stage.
 I am an intuitive painter. A lot of what I do is that I allow myself to be guided by what I have already painted. I respond to the color, and the line, and the shapes.

What I am moving towards is a feeling. This particular painting was motivated by that feeling of joy, and peace, and of that full hearted love you feel when you see your horses content in the pasture.

If I have succeeded, you will feel it too

All the Angles

                                  Detail of a Work in Progress

I have consider this painting that I am working on from all the angles. I have considered each hue and value. I have agonized over each colour. The thickness of the lines have undergone scrutiny, not to mention their length, their direction, whether or not the intersected.

It has all been evaluated, not once, or twice, but again and again.

You see each time I add or remove something it affects everything.

September Workshop

  On Saturday, September 24th, I will be having a workshop on Creativity and making the most of time you spend creating.

I will be introducing strategies and exercises that will enable you to clear creative blocks out of you way.  While this class is geared towards visual artist it will help anyone struggling with creative endeavors.

The workshop will be held in my Flagstaff studio from 10:00 to 12:30 and will include all materials, although participants may want to bring a few of their own things. Space is limited so if you are interested please email me at

Hope to see you!

In the Still
Giclée Print

There is a space between night and morning. Horse people know that space, where you can see the horses grazing and a mist is rising up obscuring the ground. It is quite and peaceful. It hints at the promise of a day and that all good things are possible.
