simple and sweet
Virginia and I have started painting records. It feels very vintage-y and its fun to try out a different "canvas".

"It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God." ~ Mary Daly
"By not acknowledging that our gifts are a part
of God's purpose for us, we stop exercising our playful, inventive, imaginative selves and instead focus only on the necessities of making a living, a home, a family, and a place for ourselves in the grown-up world." ~ Janice Elsheimer

Have you ever seen Finding Neverland? I love that movie for so many reasons but one part that I alway love is when JM Barrie and his wife go to bed each in their separate bedrooms. She opens the door into her boring dark bedroom and steps in. Barrie opens the door to his room and it opens up into a bright forest with laughter and fairies...He lived in his imagination and it allowed him to greatly use his gifts to bring us great stories, most notably Peter Pan. Are you too grown up to use your imagination? Are your gifts tucked neatly away as something you used to do when you were an irresponsible child?

These I did for Kevin. He owns Hogan's Hideaway and has graciously allowed me to hang some of my paintings in the restaurant. Thanks Kev!

today i sold a painting to a random lady who walked into my starbucks, told me she wanted to buy all my paintings on the wall, and handed me money for one of them. shock! she asked for a bunch of my business cards because she loves my work so much she wants all her friends to check out my blog! (guess I better update it!) It was exciting to sell a work of art to a complete stranger who likes my stuff. So far I've only sold stuff to friends. Just thought I'd share :-)

This painting was done for my friend Allison Bell to match her new bedroom. The leaves on the trees are made out of paint chips.
