Reach for the Light


Love the way these tulips are all yearning for some sunlight.. sort of the way everyone in Northern Ohio feels about now. This is an ACEO, currently on eBay.

I came across this article about Calligrapher Monk Father Robert Palladino  and Steve Jobs that I thought was interesting.

 And on the ARt Show front I'm thrilled to say that six of my collages have been included in the new show, "Piecing it All together: The Art of Collage"  at the Valley Art Center in Chagrin Falls:

Much more about this later!

This month the theme was South Africia and I used this view   of the beach at a place called Waters Edge.

White Bunny on a Blanket

The Color of White Challenge

 I painted this as part of the Daily Paint Works weekly challenge 
Painting whites can always be a challenge but adding the colorful fabric is something I would not have thought of on my own. 
This painting is 8 x10"
