Awakening Sometimes Means Remembering

Awakening to My History Sometimes, I discover a photo or some other record of something I have created in the past, awakening curiousity. I've happened upon these things and then wondered, "Who did that? I'd like to see more," or "Oh, there it is!!" Other times I...

Lady in Red

The Lady in Red The Lady in Red Jacket is another inner spirit portrait, unsolicited. She didn't wish to sit for her portrait. She's busy emerging... Words appeared as I was painting. I inscribed some of them on the sides of the canvas: As she...

Cracks of Gold

We finished filing our taxes last night. Another efforted race to the finish line, jabbed right in the middle of this new start on which I am embarking (Inner Spirit Portraits). I feel cracked open. I feel tender, fragile and strong. I wrote recently in the Daily...

Another Idea

I bought some transparent acrylics today, but have not had the opportunity to work with them yet. Another idea that I had was that I could paint and color my drawings digitally for my Spirit Paintings. I've done quite a bit of that with my pen drawing, but not so much...

In the Process

A Whole New Thing

Sometime beginnings are humble, even when long overdue. This image may not look like much, however, it marks the scant beginning of a whole new thing. I am testing a different medium, specifically watercolor pencils direct on canvas. So far, they passed the test. Next...
