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.

My 'Lil Angels

These 'lil angels I refer to as my "block" paintings. I struggled with inspiration the past several months.Painting felt forced and time was limited....but I persisted:) Painting these images, which are very different from the more abstract and "edgy" work that I intend to pursue this summer, allowed me to think and clear the mental clutter. All of these paintings are "in process".I approached them as exercises in color and texture...the angels are for my friend Andrea, a believer in angels and demons:)So my block is busted and I am pumped to paint. I started a commission today as well.
More to come:)
