When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

New Works Inspired by Robert Christian

Robert inspires me everyday. Mostly because of his humor,warmth and his selection of names by which he addresses me: Llama, Joey, and Bra have been replaced in recent weeks by "J-money". He is a funny kid. I love his spirit and his confidence.
Robert and Christina are fortunate to have grown up at the Jersey shore. Not only do they live here, they have enjoyed and embraced their environment. Robert' s passion for fishing, boating and more recently, diving and spearfishing, are fascinating to me. Some of my recent works are in celebration of my son and his continual effort to find his own unique voice.
I intend to paint a series which include fish. The above image is entitled,"Hooked." It will soon be available to purchase as a print. Currently Robert works at Casino Fishing Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ. Click on the above images to see where he spends his days.
