Update on Half-Off Sale

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Half-Off Sale.    Nine paintings have found a new home.    I consider paintings like "books".     A "book" is only good if someone is reading it.   They are not any good packed away on a shelf or in a box.   The same is true of "paintings".   They are only good if they are hanging on a wall and being enjoyed!!   

Next things are:
- Douglas County Art Guild Show at Cultural Arts Center, Douglasville, GA  - through June 2018
- Douglas County Courthouse Art Show - photography and paintings in a one person show -         September 2018

I've also entered the paintings below in the NOVAS Show.   We will find out in July, 2018 which ones have been accepted.

Monastery of the Holy Spirit

Monastery of the Holy Spirit - Oil - 2018 - 9x13 unframed
The Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, GA is one of my favorite places to visit.   I've taken many photographs there and painted this church several times.    The monks built it one wheel barrel of concrete at a time.    A calm and serene place to pray and meditate.

Finishing Up 3-D


I love repurposing....even in art.    Our project was a secret box.    I was able to use the self portraits created in Drawing for the top.      Inside was filled with collages of photos and small memory pieces.   I even made a memory jar to hold my favorite quotes about life and death.   More photos to come.  
Our task was to create a hand and head sculpture that was a self portrait but it also had to tell our story.    Guess it's pretty evident that I lived by a railroad track growing up!  :)    I love working in clay and definitely want to try this again.
