Ove the Labor Day weekend, I had two paintings that went together to their forever home, in Flagstaff, AZ, and their new owner sent me pics!
“Sea Crest Dawn XXVII”
“Another Joy” Like this: Like Loading...

I recently was commissioned to recreate a version of ‘
Rainflowers‘ in a larger size for a couple in Palm Desert. It was an odd size they needed, but I knew just where to go to get that made perfect – Jim Ciskowski at Blue Ribbon Art Support – he also makes wonderful cradle panels. We had the panel and painting created within a month, and I was delighted to be able to take it over and install it on Memorial Day. Here’s the painting, and in its forever home. Once I got in there, I totally understood the odd size, it needed to match their artwork on the other side of the tv!
Rainflowers II. Contains the words “Only the rain puts the color in the flowers”.
They might get swapped around, just for variation!

I was pleased to be accepted into the
Grey Cube Gallery Skies show recently, with my refractured watercolor ‘Crimson Thread’. One of the things I’m enjoying about so many online shows is that it’s really practical for me to enter them! Enjoy the show!
Unfortunately the contest doesn’t allow you to see the sonnet in the painting: Crimson Thread The world is turning into dawn, and I can see a crimson thread start to appear announcing that the newest day is near – it makes me greet the beauty with a sigh. Soon the ribbon’s red will turn to gold and other wisps softly to scarlet turn – water, under influence of light will burn such colors that it awes us to behold the transition from nighttime into day and cause to wonder how we could deserve this vision – just for living on a curve – and leaves us without words that we can say, only the thought that perhaps we should do right to earn the reward that brings the end of night.

The title of this painting is ‘And Never Leave…’ I’m glad to say that it has found its forever home with one of my favorite collectors!
Dawn off my back porch (there’s a new one every day but few look as good as this one). The poem written for this painting and painted into it is:
To step into a place and just belong
to stand within a sky and to believe to raise your head, look up and to behold and never leave, and never leave, and never leave. Like this: Like Loading...
