For the past decade or so, I have sold and gifted many paintings. See some of them below.
It has been very rewarding to learn that others appreciate my art work. The process of reworking a canvas over and over again; time after time with new colors, scratching and scraping away layers repeatedly can be frightening and very liberating at the same time. End game = joy.
pieces from many series are represented here - I am relatively consistent in my process, style and technique throughout most - generally, I prefer to work thick colorful pieces repetitively

"Hi again, Thanks for such a great email along with all the info about your site. I just visited--like a little vacation!--and I really loved it. I think your work is so exciting and beautiful, and no one else is doing it! It really stands out as being mature and grounded, yet somehow other-worldly and mystical as well. I immediately fell in love with Meditation and some of the others as well."
