Hawk-Shapeshifter, Building Bridges and Banishing the Stage Fright Phantom

| June 9, 2012

The beginning of June ushers in huge sighs of relief. The intensity of Springtime activities gives way to the more layed back sounds of summer as music recitals and school finals become fixtures of a more punctuated period gone by. Now everyone can purge old papers and move on to fresh music and clean canvases, […]

Ghosts & Spirits Tarot offer, the finished Grouse-Shapeshifter and Kyra’s piano recital.

| May 11, 2012

I’m offering a Ghosts & Spirits Tarot limited edition kit numbered 25. As of this writing, nearly 10 orders have been placed by individuals from as far away as Thailand. I’m always excited to put packages of my art creations together for people. For the custom colored-pencil drawings, the keywords so far have included: raven, enchantment, cat, Rainbow Bridge, dreamer and reincarnation…

Hawk-Shapeshifter and Fairy Tale Corners

| April 2, 2012

When I asked my friend Lesley Morrison to pose for a bird, she chose Hawk-Shapeshifter. As I began sketching, it became apparent that this piece would encompass vistas and layers of landscapes–internal and external…

Hope Springs Eternal & Thoughts On Success – Part 2

| March 2, 2012

This week, I am grateful to have both new and old friends share their thoughts about how they define success. A few of these participants I’ve known for many, many years. They are testament to my growth as I am of theirs, having watched each other travel the bumpy roads that make our individual successes authentic and hard earned…

The Fool, the Piano and a Phantom Called Stage Fright

| May 26, 2011

I love the piano. To me, the keys are allegorical. They are emotive, mysterious, scary and can be a girl’s best friend. They can feel hard and cold, slippery and wet, warm and soft–all depending on what is being played and how it’s being played.

Battlefield Ghosts: Documenting raw, unfiltered creative energy

| August 30, 2010

Here’s the second drawing in what is becoming a series of time-lapse photography experiments. Drawing Battlefield Ghosts was 25% preplanned, 75% spontaneous creative outpouring. As I worked on this drawing…

“Birdie” and The Story of Thumbelina

| April 29, 2010

The other day, we found a shivering baby bird on our front step. We looked up at the nest built over one of our hurricane shutters and assumed the worst. We gently picked up the fragile creature and examined it for injuries. Miraculously, other than being half-scared-to-death, it looked fine! Putting it back…

Rumpelstiltskin: Getting Through “Life Stuff” One Straw At A Time

| March 21, 2009

Sometimes the day-to-day “life stuff” has a way of piling up on us. Just when you think you may have things under control, something may get unexpectedly tossed your way, throwing you off balance…

Frost King, stepmothers and keeping your cool

| December 27, 2008

The Frost King as King of Pentacles was a really fun painting to do partly because I love to draw spirits (and this one was done with some spontaneous flourishes—ice and snow are fun to paint using watercolors) and partly because I was eager to capture the resilience of the little girl who maintained decorum and courage in the face of impending doom.
