Something new and fun. Gouache paintings torn up and then glued back together.
Also want to share something I found on Brain Pickings which was just what every artist needs to read. Check the link below and enjoy.

This photo was taken through instagram with an earlybird filter. I have just always love that filter, to me it looks like an old 70’s polaroid photo. The story behind the land grabber’s house, the man who owned this house fenced in an additional 4 acres which belonged to the state of New Mexico and put a new mobile home on it. He was found out and lost everything. Nice try. When working on the panel below the photo it was to be an abstract. From my poor dwindling memory came land grabber’s house. Some thing just want to be. When do you know that a painting is finished? Best stop before.

This was first time to be able to preview the show. One of my close friends had a lovely piece in the exhibit which will help raise money for Site. I can’t tell you the name of the artist as it is to be revealed when a collector purchases the piece. I love the ideal of not knowing who the artist is, so one just focuses on the work and not the name. Here is the piece and if I was to tell you their name Site would have to kill me. SO FORGET IT
These are different pieces, shapes in more neutral tones. The image evolves as I construct and deconstruct. These pieces are oil,wax,and ash on panel. The ash comes from my wood burning stove which I use all winter for heat. Enjoy the work.
