Painting On Purpose AND Silent Story

One thing I’ve realized when I drip tidbits of Silent Story out is that MOST of us have a story like this… we’ve all felt betrayed or forgotten at one point or another. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. Because this is a self-imposed project, I rely only on myself. I have no one to blame but me. For delays, mistakes, dropped balls. I must be driven from within, driven from a visualization of holding the sample copy in my hands, and then, the final product. And I am. Learn much more and reserve YOUR copy of the Silent Story...

Letting Go with the Seeker - 16 Calendars left in stock

Happy Holidays! I wish for you: peace, contentment and letting go of burdens that will not serve the next stage of your life.  The Seeker (for my Silent Story) is letting go... And we should, too. Maybe put 15 things in a donation bag today. Delete 20-200 not-so-great photos off of your phone. Delete text threads with people whose incoming texts make you feel less than good.    Join me in my private FB group to follow along more closely with the Seeker and Silent Story. I'm getting ready to choose a raffle winner for an original painting. You can...

Inktober - Your 2022 Art Calendar

Inktober - Your 2022 Art Calendar

I've been recording the process of my Inktober drawings this year, that has been interesting and different. It's fun telling a very short story with each drawing. You can hear the stories with each drawing here. This is my 5th year of Inktober.
